Representative Text

1 When life’s toils are o’er,
Some day soon,
On that golden shore
Some day soon;
Loved ones we then shall meet,
Some day soon,
Seated at Jesus’ feet,
Some day soon.

Refrain:
When life’s toil is o’er,
Some day soon,
On the golden shore,
Some day soon.

2 Free from earthly care,
Some day soon,
In that haven fair
Some day soon;
By our dear Master’s side,
Some day soon,
Forever to abide,
Some day soon. [Refrain]

3 Gathered ‘round the throne,
Some day soon,
Knowing as we’re known,
Some day soon;
Our joy will be complete,
Some day soon,
As we His praise repeat,
Some day soon. [Refrain]

After attending a revival meeting by Reuben Torrey and Charles M. Alexander, Harkness became Alexander’s pianist. He came to Christ shortly thereafter (on a bicycle, he said), and made several round the world tours with Torrey and Alexander. Harkness was especially well known for his program The Music of the Cross, and as the author of correspondence courses in hymn playing. He wrote over 2,000 hymns and Gospel songs in his lifetime.
