Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Some happy day mine eyes shall see,
The face of Him who died for me;
I’ll praise Him thro’ Eternity,
Some happy day, some happy day.

Refrain:
Some happy day, some happy day,
The Lord will wipe our tears away,
And we shall see Him as He is,
Some happy day, some happy day.

2 Some happy day I too shall sing
The song that makes all heaven ring;
Worthy the Lamb, our Lord and King,
Some happy day, some happy day. [Refrain]

3 Some happy day, O blessed tho’t,
The race is run, the battle fought;
We’ll join the throng by His blood bought,
Some happy day, some happy day. [Refrain]

4 Some happy day, ‘tis drawing near,
The tho’t my fainting soul doth cheer;
Sweet welcome from His lips to hear
Some happy day, some happy day. [Refrain]
