Representative Text

1 Sometime and somewhere my Lord I shall see;
Some day behold Him who suffered for me;
Saved by His grace I shall see the great King,
Then what a wonderful song I shall sing!

Some day, some day,
Some day by and by;
How I shall sing when I see the great King,
Some day, by and by.

2 Some day the myst’ries of life I shall know,
And understand why the Lord led me so;
There in His beauty His grace to behold,
There where none sorrow or ever grow old. [Refrain]

3 Some day I’ll join in the song of the blest;
Some day awake in the mansions of rest;
There with my Lord and the friends gone before—
Oh, what a joy to be parted no more! [Refrain]
