Some Morning

Some morning I’ll lay my burdens down,
And I’ll no more be troubled with sin;
The Lord will give me a shining crown:
When at last I’ve quit the paths of men.

The dark clouds of troubles and trials
Sometimes hide the Lord’s face from my view;
I oft contend with that which defiles,
But up there ev’rything is made new.

Temptation will trouble me no more,
There’ll be no stumbling-blocks in the way;
All will be happy on Heaven’s shore,
Oh, the land of never-ending day.

My eyes now shed many bitter tears,
Oh, the loneliness I often face;
Each day here I face many dark fears,
Over there all of these He’ll erase.

I often wonder if I’ll endure,
Or perhaps by the wayside I’ll fall…
In this low land it seems nothing’s sure:
But it will be when I hear Him call!

Some morning I’ll lay my burdens down,
And I’ll no more be troubled with sin;
The Lord will give me a shining crown:
When at last I’ve quit the paths of men.
