God shall wipe away all tears…and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.@Revelation 21:4

On some sweet day, in time to come,
Our wrongs will then be righted,
And peace and joy will visit us,
Both welcome guests invited.

Refrain

Yes, some sweet day, in God’s own time,
We’ll never know a sorrow;
For peace and joy will reign supreme
In God’s own time, tomorrow.

The dawn of day will bring no pain,
The evening shades no sorrow,
For love will reign in hearts of men,
In God’s own time, tomorrow.

Refrain

When death shall close these weary orbs,
And spirits soar to Heaven,
In gazing back we’ll marvel at
The mercy God hath given.

Refrain

We’ll wonder why we doubted Him,
Why oft we murmured sadly,
The burdens then will seem so light
We’ll wish we’d borne them gladly.

Refrain

The things that now seem mysteries,
We’ll understand all clearly;
Then how we’ll wish with all our hearts,
We’d loved Him far more dearly.
