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 among men, my Example is He!
Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me;Buried, He carried my sins far away;Rising, He justified freely forever;One day He's coming-O glorious day!
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!
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!
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!
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!
