Representative Text

1 Some sweet day when life is o’er,
We shall meet above;
We shall greet those gone before,
In that home of love.

Some sweet day, some sweet day;
Oh! that happy time will be,
Some sweet day.

2 Trials here below we meet,
Sorrow, pain and care;
In that happy home so sweet,
Joy and peace we’ll share. [Refrain]

3 Bright the dawning of that morn,
Night be turned to day;
Parted friends no farewells know,
Tears be wiped away. [Refrain]
