Representative Text

1 You speak of the good you intend to do,
Some other day, Some other day;
You mean to be loyal and brave and true,
Some other day, Some other day.
The Saviour is standing outside the gate,
He’s ready to enter, why longer wait?
Accept Him today—it may be too late
Some other day, Some other day.

Refrain:
Some other day, ah, yes, some other day,
What of the days that are passing by?
A wasted life—and the end draws nigh;
In vain, perhaps, you for help may cry
Some other day, Some other day.

2 You mean to come back from the paths of sin
Some other day, Some other day;
You say that the Saviour will let you in
Some other day, Some other day.
But what of the days that are passing by?
You’re wasting your life—and the end draws nigh;
It may be too late when for help you cry,
Some other day, Some other day. [Refrain]

3 Life’s evening comes on as you wait until
Some other day, Some other day;
With hands that are empty you beckon still,
Some other day, Some other day.
The shadows are falling around you fast,
The sunshine you know cannot always last,
Your season for labor may all be past,
Some other day, Some other day. [Refrain]
