Representative Text

1 Some day, I know not where or when,
Beyond the driving tempest’s blast,
Within a quiet harbor bar,
I shall cast anchor, safe at last.

Some day, some day, some glad sweet day,
I shall with joy His face behold;
Some day shall safe at anchor lay,
Some day shall walk the streets of gold.

2 Some day, full soon, sweet Eden’s shore,
May burst upon my raptured sight,
And I shall see the glory-land,
Bathed in the Lamb’s eternal light. [Refrain]

3 For Him who faced the howling wind,
And stilled the waves of Galilee,
Will safely guide my storm tossed bark
Across life’s dark tempestuous sea, [Refrain]

4 And tho’ it hath not been revealed
Where Heaven’s gold-paved highway be,
I know that I shall one day dwell
With Him whose blood was shed for me. [Refrain]
