1 Some sweet day we’ll meet above,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day;
In that home where all is love,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day.

Refrain:
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day,
In that home so bright and fair,
Mother dear, we’ll meet you there,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day.

2 Oh, the joys of heav’n we’ll share,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day;
Meet and greet our loved ones there,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day. [Refrain]

3 Mists and clouds will clear away,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day;
Then we’ll dwell with Christ for aye,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day. [Refrain]
