What a Day That Will Be / There is coming a day when no heartaches shall come / What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see

1
There’s coming a day when no heartaches shall come
No more clouds in the sky
No more tears to dim the eye
All is peace forever more
On that happy golden shore
What a day, glorious day that will be

What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see
When I look upon His face the one who saved my by His grace
When He takes me by the hand and leads me to the promised land
What a day, glorious day that will be

2
There will be no sorrows there
And no more burdens to bear
No more sickness and, no more pain
No more parting over there
And forever I will be with the one who died for me
What a day, glorious day that will be

What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see
When I look upon His face the one who saved my by His grace
When He takes me by the hand and leads me to the promised land
What a day, glorious day that will be

What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see
When I look upon His face the one who saved my by His grace
When He takes me by the hand and leads me to the promised land
What a day, glorious day that will be

1
I must needs go home by the way of the cross
There’s no other way but this
I shall ne’er get sight of the gates of light
If the way of the cross I miss

The way of the cross leads home
The way of the cross leads home
It is sweet to know as I onward go
The way of the cross leads home

2
I must needs go on in the blood sprinkled way
The path that the Savior trod
If I ever climb to the heights sublime
Where the soul is at home with God

The way of the cross leads home
The way of the cross leads home
It is sweet to know as I onward go
The way of the cross leads home

3
Then I bid farewell to the way of the world
To walk in it never more
For the Lord says “Come” and I seek my home
Where He waits at the open door

The way of the cross leads home
The way of the cross leads home
It is sweet to know as I onward go
The way of the cross leads home

In the Sweet By and By / There’s a land that is fairer than day

Song based on the Bible verse:

In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

1
There’s a land that is fairer than day
And by faith we can see it afar
For the Father waits over the way
To prepare us a dwelling place there

In the sweet by and by
We shall meet on that beautiful shore
In the sweet by and by
We shall meet on that beautiful shore

2
We shall sing on that beautiful shore
The melodious songs of the blessed
And our spirits shall sorrow no more
Not a sigh for the blessing of rest

In the sweet by and by
We shall meet on that beautiful shore
In the sweet by and by
We shall meet on that beautiful shore

3
To our bountiful Father above
We will offer our tribute of praise
For the glorious gift of His love
And the blessings that hallow our days

In the sweet by and by
We shall meet on that beautiful shore
In the sweet by and by
We shall meet on that beautiful shore
