One Day

 One day when heaven was filled with His praises,
One day when sin was as black as could be,
Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin,
dwelt amongst men, my example is He!

Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me;
Buried, He carried my sins far away;
Rising, He justified, freely for ever.
One day He's coming, oh, glorious day!

2. One day they led Him up Calvary's mountain,
One day they nailed Him to die on the tree;
Suffering anguish, despised and rejected,
Bearing our sins, my Redeemer is He!

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!

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 ever more!

5. One day the trumpet will sound for His coming,
One day the skies with His glories will shine;
Wonderful day, my beloved ones bringing,

glorious Savior, this Jesus is mine!



One of Anna's favorite hymns.  She was in the process of memorizing it as she "recovered" from what we thought was a very bad flu.  It was sung at her memorial by a church full  of people who love her.  It has taken me over 7 years to put this page up.  I am crying now as I write this.  I cry every time we sing it during our church services.  Through my tears, however, there is great rejoicing for He IS coming again!  I pray you also may see Heaven through your tears.
