Poem for the Day

 

 

 

SOME GLAD, SWEET DAY

—————————

SOME day, some glad, sweet day

We shall be like our blessed Lord 

And see Him as He is. 

Soon we shall strain our 

Weary eyes no more

To catch, beyond this earthly

House of fettering clay,

A gleam of heavenly glory

From His radiant face.

 

Some day, some fair, sweet day 

His loving hand will wipe 

Away our tears. His tender   

Voice will thrill our souls 

With rapture, when we 

Hear Him say, “Well done,

Dear heart, well done, 

My joy is thine; for thee

The victor’s crown is won.

 

“Thou hast been faithful,   

Thou hast borne the cross,

The thorns have pierced thy feet;

But now the Night is past— 

The Day hath come—bright,

  Glorious Day of endless joy and love.

The trial time hath proved thee true, 

And thou art safe, beloved,

In thy Father’s home.”

 

O glorious Day, for thee we long!   

We will be faithful, will the    

Burdens bear, sustained by grace Divine.

In meek submission to Thy holy will,  

Dear Lord, by faith we clasp Thy hand  

As side by side we tread the Narrow Way 

And wait—for it will surely come— 

Some day, some dear, sweet day.  

O, tarry not too long!
