1 We shall cross the rolling tide,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day;
We shall gain the golden side,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day;
Near the crystal waters roam,
In the saints’ eternal home,
Where the shadows never come,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day.

Refrain:
We shall cross the rolling tide,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day;
We shall gain the golden side,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day.

2 We shall tread the streets of gold,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day;
Heaven’s splendor shall behold,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day;
We shall find the mansions fair,
Jesus promised to prepare,
That are waiting over there,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day. [Refrain]

3 Yes we’ll reach the home of God,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day;
Thro’ the precious, precious blood,
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day;
Never there to sigh again,
Never thought of grief or pain,
Evermore with Christ to reign;
Some sweet day, yes, some sweet day. [Refrain]
