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

Some of these days all the skies will be brighter

Representative 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!

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]
