#103: One Day!

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

One day when heaven was filled with his praises,

One hday when sin was a black as could be,

Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin,

Dwelt among men — my example is He!

CHORUS

Living — He loved me, dying He saved me,

Buried — He carried my sins far away;

Rising He justifed freely, forever:

One day He’s coming — O glorious day!

2

One day they led Him up Calvary’s moutain,

One day they nailed Him to die on the tree;

Suffering anguish, despised and rejected,

Bearing our sin;, my Redeemer is He!

CHORUS

3

One day they left Him alone in the garden,

One day He rested, from suffering free;

Angels came down o’er His tomb to keep vigil —

Hope of the hopeless, my Savior is He!

CHORUS

4

One day the grave could conceal Him no longer,

One day the stone rolled away from the door;

Then He arose, over death He had conquered,

Now is ascended, My Lord evermore!

CHORUS

5

One day the trumpet will soun for His coming,

One day the skies with His glory will shine;

Wonderful day, my beloved ones bringing!

Glorious Savior, this Jesus is mine!

CHORUS
