Representative Text

1. Some sweet day my Lord will come,
Come to claim His own;
I shall meet Him face to face,
Before the Advent throne.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Like Him I shall be;
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
For I shall see Him as He is!

2. Some sweet day this body frail,
In a moment’s space,
Shall be changed and upward caught,
And stand before His face. [Refrain]

3. Some sweet day my hand shall clasp
Those long gone before;
Press them to my heart with joy,
To part again no more. [Refrain]
