1 Sometime the night of sorrow will be o’er,
Sometime I’ll reach my home on yonder shore;
The hours are flying fast, the morn is nigh,
Oh, sweet will be the waking by and by.

Refrain:
Sometime, sometime,
All glory to the Lamb who died!
I’ll rise in his likeness, satisfied
Sometime, sometime.

2 Sometime I’ll find the dear ones early lost,
Whose missing forms so many tears have cost;
Sometime we’ll meet to never say good-by,
In that bright home where loved ones never die. [Refrain]

3 Sometime in all his beauty I shall see
The bless Lamb of God, who died for me;
Sometime I’ll make the courts of heaven ring,
While for his saving grace his praise I’ll sing. [Refrain]
