He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed…and He guided them to their desired haven.@Psalm 107:29-30

Some day, when all life’s surges
And storms of time are o’er,
Our bark shall safely anchor
On Canaan’s peaceful shore;
Some day, when all the tumult
And din of war shall cease,
The saints shall all be gathered
Within the port of peace.

Refrain

Some day, O joyful day!
This world shall pass away;
Upon that fair celestial shore,
We’ll meet to part no more.

Some day, in realms of glory
My Savior I shall see,
And tell the wondrous story
Of Him who died for me;
Some day I’ll join the chorus
Of angel choirs above,
Some day with all the ransomed
I’ll sing His deathless love.

Refrain

Some day, I’ll meet the loved ones
Who long have passed away,
And nevermore be parted
Through Heav’n’s eternal day;
Some day, arrayed in brightness,
The Lamb shall I behold;
Some day in robes of whiteness
I’ll walk the streets of gold.

Refrain
