Some Day Well Cease From Labor Here


Some day we’ll cease from labor here,
Some day the thread of life will break;
In that bright home of endless day,
To life immortal we shall wake,
To life immortal we shall wake.

Chorus:
O bright “some day,” O blessed day,
From earthly cares we’ll flee away;
Our feet shall press the shining shore,
We’ll dwell with Christ forevermore.

Some day we’ll leave this house of clay;
Our hopes now rest on things above;
On pinions bright we’ll fly away,
To be at home with those we love,
To be at home with those we love. [Chorus]

O glorious hope, O bright “some day,”
What sweet assurance in my soul!
We’ll follow Christ, the living way,
And trust in Him tho’ billows roll,
And trust in Him tho’ billows roll. [Chorus]

We’ll labor on till that “some day,”
And press the battle to the goal;
Till we shall gain the victory,
And gather safe within the fold,
And gather safe within the fold. [Chorus]
