Sometime all sorrows will be o’er,
Sometime!
All earthly care be known no more!
Oh, what rejoicing on the golden shore,
Sometime, sometime soon!

Sometime our loved ones we shall greet,
Sometime!
When in the Father’s house we meet
Only to sit forever at His feet,
Sometime, sometime soon!

Sometime, when sets at last life’s sun,
Sometime!
Our journey ended, labor done,
Oh, what a crown for ev’ry vict’ry won,
Sometime, sometime soon!

Sometime, I know not when ’twill be,
Sometime!
My Lord will come again for me,
Then I shall reign with Him eternally.
Sometime, sometime soon!
