We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Some Day, it Won't be Long

Representative Text

1 Some day I’ll cross the mystic stream,
It won’t be long, it may be soon;
Some day I’ll lay my burdens down,
It won’t be long, it may be soon;
Some day I’ll reach the golden shore,
And dwell with Jesus evermore,
I’ll meet the ones who’ve gone before,
It won’t be long, it may be soon.

Refrain:
There’ll be no sorrow there,
There’ll be no sorrow there,
In heav’n above, where all is love.

2 Some day this mortal life shall cease,
It won’t be long, it may be soon;
Some day I’ll see my Savior’s face,
It won’t be long, it may be soon;
Some day I’ll leave this vale of tears,
Forget the struggles of long years,
I’ll know no sorrow, pain, nor fears;
It won’t be long, it may be soon. [Refrain]

3 He’s coming back with glory rare,
It won’t be long, it may be soon;
We’ll rise to meet Him in the air,
It won’t be long, it may be soon;
If He should call me, this I know:
I’m saved and ready now to go,
I’m waiting with my heart aglow;
It won’t be long, it may be soon. [Refrain]

4 Then as you travel on life’s way,
Thro’ waters deep, or billows’ foam;
You may have Jesus as your stay,
He’ll walk with you and lead you home.
O brother, will you let Him in?
He’ll save and keep you free from sin,
Till heaven’s door you enter in;
It won’t be long, it may be soon. [Refrain]
