908. Some Blessed Day

1 Someday we’ll cease our toiling here,
Our hopes are now on things above;
Someday, without a doubt or fear,
We’ll gather home to those we love.

Refrain:
Some blessed day, oh, joyful day,
When we shall speed from earth away!
Our feet shall press that golden shore,
To be with Christ forevermore.

2 Someday the cord of life will break,
That holds us to our house of clay,
In which we groan till we shall wake
In that fair home of endless day. [Refrain]

3 Oh, glorious hope, the sweet someday!
That hope the anchor of our soul,
To keep us saved in Christ the way,
And trusting Him though billows roll. [Refrain]

4 Someday—the time seems strangely near,
When life’s frail thread shall severed be,
And we shall see that home so dear,
From earthly cares forever free. [Refrain]
