Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Some of these days all the skies will be brighter

Full Text

1 Some of these days all the skies will be brighter--
Some of these days all the burdens be lighter;
Hearts will be happier, souls will be whiter--
Some of these days, some of these days!

Chorus:
Some of these days, some of these days,
Skies will be brighter some of these days,;
Some of these days all the burdens be lighter,
Some of these days, some of these days!

2 Some of these days, in the deserts up springing,
Fountains shall flash, while the joy bells are ringing,
And all the world, with the birds, shall go singing,
Some of these days, some of these days. [Chorus]

3 Some of these days! Let us bear with our sorrow;
Faith in the future--its light we may borrow;
There will be joy in the golden tomorrow,
Some of these days, some of these days! [Chorus]
