Representative Text

1 Some day in that bright home above,
Around His blessed throne,
I’ll sing with Him forever there,
In my immortal home.
There life with joy is all complete,
It’s glories are for me;
I’ll sing that new, that new sweet song,
Thor’ all eternity.

Oh, heaven, how blessed is the place
Where from all care set free;
No pain, no death, no sorrow there,
What joy prepared for me!

2 Some day I’ll see that great white throne,
With angel bands so fair,
I’ll walk the golden streets of life,
Prepared for me o’er there.
Some day we’ll clasp each other’s hands,
In that bright world above;
Here pain and sorrow always come
But yonder all is love. [Refrain]

3 Some day I’ll see my mother’s face;
She taught my lips to pray,
And look to Him in every hour,
To guide me in its way
How glad will be that joyous hour,
When loved ones we shall see,
And there to join in that sweet song;
How happy we will be. [Refrain]
