1 We will speak a word of comfort and of cheer,
Some day, sometime; some day, sometime;
We will give the “cup of water” cold and clear,
Some day—yes, by and by.

Chorus:
Haste! haste! the moments quickly fly,
All their swift, silent wings no hand can stay;
“Some day, sometime,” will never, never come—
Oh, what have you done today?

2 We will gather flowers fairer than the day,
Some day, sometime; some day, sometime;
Place them where their bloom will bless some stricken one,
Some day—yes, by and by. [Chorus]

3 We will sing a song of triumph brave and glad,
Some day, sometime; some day, sometime;
It shall thrill with hope some broken spirit sad,
Some day—yes, by and by. [Chorus]

4 We will reach a hand to rescue some lost soul,
Some day, sometime; some day, sometime;
Sinking where the waves of sin and anguish roll—
Some day—yes, by and by. [Chorus]
