The day of glory

Representative Text

1 When my labors here on earth are o’er, And I reach my home on that eternal shore, With my Savior there forevermore,— O what a day of glory that will be! Refrain: The time will come! And when at last I reach my home, I’ll look into His face, And thank Him for the grace That paid the price Of sin at such a sacrifice, — O what a day of glory that will be! 2 No more sorrow there, no pain, no tears, No more anxious longing, no more haunting fears, No more waiting thro’ the lonely years, — O what a day of glory that will be! [Refrain] 3 When the beauty of eternal skies Breaks in all its splendor on my op’ning eyes, When the countless dead in Christ arise,— O what a day of glory that will be! [Refrain] 4 Where a shadow nevermore is cast, Where all tears and trials are forever past, As we sing together “Home at last!” O what a day of glory that will be! [Refrain]
