SOMEDAY SOON


SOMEDAY SOON, THE LORD WILL COME,
AND TAKE THE CHURCH AWAY,
TO BE WITH HIM FOREVER MORE,
OH, WHAT A GLORIOUS DAY.

SOMEDAY SOON, WE'LL LEAVE THIS EARTH,
IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE,
AND OFF THRU SPACE, BY GOD'S GREAT GRACE,
TO HIS MANSION IN THE SKY.

IT WILL BE JUST A PREVIEW OF WHAT IS TO COME,
IN THE FUTURE THAT HAS NO END,
AS OUR LIMITLESS FUTURE IN HEAVEN'S DELIGHT,
IS JUST AROUND THE BEND.

A MANSION ON HIGH IS WAITING FOR ME,
AS ARE MY FRIENDS WHO HAVE GONE ON BEFORE,
I AN ANXIOUS TO GET THERE AND SEE FOR MYSELF,
ALL THAT MY MIND CAN IMAGINE, AND MORE.

IF GOD CAN CREATE THE HEAVENS AND EARTH,
AND MAKE THEM SO PERFECT AND FINE,
HOW MUCH BETTER T'WILL BE, THAT CITY WE'LL SEE,
MADE OF JEWELS, AND GOLD PURE AND FINE.

SOME DAY SOON, IF YOUR SINS ARE FOREGIVEN BY HIM,
THRU THE BLOOD THAT HE SHED ON THE TREE,
YOU WILL HAVE YOUR OWN MANSION ON HIGH WITH HIM,
AND FROM SIN YOU WILL EVER BE FREE.

IF YOU HAVE NOT OPEN YOUR HEART'S DOOR TO HIM,
AND ACCEPTED HIS FORGIVENESS SO FREE,
SOMEDAY SOON, YOU'LL BE LOOKING FORE THOSE YOU KNEW,
AND WILL BE LOST FOR ETERNITY.

SOMEDAY SOON, T'WILL BE TOO LATE, THE DECISION TO MAKE,
SO REMEMBER IT'S ALL UP TO YOU,
A MANSION IN HEAVEN, OR TORMENT IN HELL,
GOD LEAVES THE DECISION TO YOU.

SOMEDAY SOON, HE WILL COME IN A CLOUD IN THE AIR,
AND TOGETHER WE WILL EVERYONE BE,
ARE YOU WAITING TO GO, AND FOR ETERNITY TO FLOW,
IN THE STREAM OF GOD'S CHILDREN SET FREE.
