Owen F. Pugh (1867–1920)


Some bless­èd day, some so­lemn hour,
The Christ shall come again in pow­er;
With all the shin­ing heav’n­ly band,
Before Him ev­ery soul shall stand.


Some day, all hail that day of days,
Him we shall see and shout His praise;
Some day the Christ shall come again,
And dwell among the sons of men.

Some day the Christ shall come again,
That He may judge the sons of men;
He shall no more for sin atone,
But shall re­ceive and crown His own.


Some day, some glad and joy­ful day,
For which I watch and hope and pray;
O may I now in Him be found,
That I may then by Him be crowned.


Perhaps this day the day may be,
When I my bless­èd Lord shall see;
Then I shall en­ter at the door,
To be with Him for­ev­er­more.
