Some Day The Light Of Earth Shall Fade A


Some day the light of earth shall fade away,
And I at last shall cease to roam;
Then burdens I have borne I down shall lay;
Some golden daybreak in my home, sweet home.

Chorus:
Some golden daybreak, some golden daybreak
I shall ever cease to roam;
Some golden daybreak, some golden daybreak
I shall reach my home, sweet home.

That golden daybreak I can almost see,
A veil but thinly intervenes;
Soon at the gates eternal I shall be
To gaze upon those fair, celestial scenes. [Chorus]

The hills of Paradise with purple gleam,
The zephyrs every softly play,
And all is fairer than the fairest dreams
When breaks at last that eternal day. [Chorus]
