Lyrics

Some happy day, mine eyes shall see,
The face of Him who died for me;
I’ll praise Him thro’ eternity,
Some happy day, some happy day.

Refrain

Some happy day, some happy day,
The Lord will wipe our tears away,
And we shall see Him as He is,
Some happy day, some happy day.

Some happy day, I too shall sing
The song that makes all Heaven ring;
Worthy the Lamb, our Lord and king,
Some happy day, some happy day.

Refrain

Some happy day, O blessèd thought,
The race is run, the battle fought;
We’ll join the throng by His blood bought,
Some happy day, some happy day.

Refrain

Some happy day, ‘tis drawing near,
The thought my fainting soul doth cheer;
Sweet welcome from His lips to hear
Some happy day, some happy day.
