Some day, it won't be long

Full 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]
