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, 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.

1 Some other day—when portals wide
Their mystic vales unfold,
‘Tis then I’ll stand by Jesus’ side,
And all His love behold.

‘Tis then I’ll understand the past,
‘Tis then I’ll see and know
Why pleasures come but do not last,
Why sorrows deeper grow.

2 Some other day, when all the years
That swiftly come and go,
I’ll know whence came these bitter tears,
Tears that forbidden flow. [Refrain]

3 Some other day I’ll know the pow’r
That dealt with me while here,
That sent me peace form Love’s own bow’r,
To take away my fear. [Refrain]

4 Some other day, so fair and bright,
Some day not far away,
Help me till then as in Thy sight,
To live for Thee each day. [Refrain]
