1 Tho' the way we journey may be often drear,
We shall see the King some day;
On that blessèd morning clouds will disappear;
We shall see the King some day.

Chorus:
We shall see the King some day,
We will shout and sing some day;
Gathered ’round the throne,
When He shall call His own,
We shall see the King some day.

2 After pain and anguish, after toil and care,
We shall see the King some day;
Thro' the endless ages joy and blessing share,
We shall see the King some day. (Chorus)

3 After foes are conquered, after battles won,
We shall see the King some day;
After strife is over, after set of sun,
We shall see the King some day. (Chorus)

4 There with all the loved ones who have gone before,
We shall see the King some day;
Sorrow past forever, on that peaceful shore,
We shall see the King some day. (Chorus)
