Zion’s Hill Lyrics
There waits for me a glad tomorrow,
Where gates of pearl swing open wide;
And when I’ve passed this vale of sorrow,
I’ll dwell upon the other side.
Someday beyond the reach of mortal ken;
Someday God only knows just where and when
The wheels of mortal life shall all stand still;
And I shall go to rest on Zion’s hill.
Someday I’ll hear the angels singing,
Beyond the shadows of the tomb,
And the whole realm of heaven ringing,
While saints are singing, “Home, sweet home.”
Someday my labors will be ended,
And all my wand’rings will be o’er;
And all earth’s broken ties be mended,
And I shall sigh and weep no more.
Someday the dark clouds will be rifted,
And all the night of gloom be past;
And all life’s burdens will be lifted
The day of rest shall dawn at last.
