Representative Text

1 Some day when life and all its cares are o’er;
And we are safe upon a brighter shore,
We’ll know what mercy had conceal’d before,
Some day, some happy day.

Refrain:
Some day,
Some day,
Some happy day,
We’ll know the secret of it by and by,
Some happy day.

2 Some day; nor ask we now the reason why
Our hopes, so bright, seem’d only born to die,
We’ll know the secret of it by and by,—
Some day, some happy day. [Refrain]

3 Some day the clouds that hover o’er our way
Will lift, and, in the realms of endless day,
We’ll learn how full of gracious show’rs were they,
Some day, some happy day. [Refrain]

4 Some day we’ll see the loved ones face to face
And not be pain’d to note the vacant place,
We’ll learn the wonders of sustaining grace,
Some day, some happy day. [Refrain]
