Some Day The Silver Cord Will Break And

Some day the silver cord will break,
And earthly dreams and vigils cease;
My spirit will its clay forsake,
And find the haven-land of peace.

The silver cord some day will break,
And I to endless joys awake;
O then for me shall life be done,
Eternal life and heav’n be won!

Some day for me the Lord shall call,
With gentle whisper in my ear;
The silver cord will loose and fall,
When I his tender voice shall hear. [Refrain]

O, when shall break life’s silver cord,
And when the morn of morns I see,
With friends I love, my King and Lord
At heaven’s gate shall welcome me. [Refrain]
