Lyrics

Some day the journey will be done,
Somewhere we’ll find a promised rest;
Some day all sorrow turn to joy,
Somewhere, some day we shall be blest.

Refrain

Some day, some day,
Somewhere, the place we cannot see;
Some day, some day,
Somewhere the Savior waits for me.

Some day we’ll meet our loved and lost,
Somewhere in some far brighter land;
Some day we’ll sing the new, new song,
And join with praise an angel band.

Refrain

Some day our Lord will call us home,
Somewhere we’ll lay our burden down;
Some day, if we have faithful been,
Somewhere we will receive a crown.
