Representative Text

1 Sometime, somewhere, yes, some sweet day,
Where sin and sorrow have passed away,
With joy in our hearts, and songs on our tongues,
We’ll rest in our Savior some sweet day.

2 Sometime, somewhere, yes, some glad morn,
Where cloud nor mist bedim the fair dawn,
There light from the throne, the light of God’s Son,
Shall fall on our faces some sweet day.

3 Sometime, somewhere, yes, some glad day,
We’ll join the blood-washed, blissful as they,
To sing the "new song" and praise the dear name,
Of our blest Redeemer, some sweet day.
