Scripture Verse

I go and prepare a place for you…that where I am, there ye may be also. John 14:3


Ephraim T. Hildebrand

Words: Eph­ra­im T. Hil­de­brand, in New Cen­tu­ry Ca­rols (Day­ton, Ohio: Unit­ed Breth­ren Pub­lish­ing House, 1899), num­ber 21.

Music: Au­gus­tus F. My­ers (🔊 pdf nwc).

If you know My­ers’ full name, or where to get a good pho­to of him (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), or a bet­ter one of Hil­de­brand, would you ?


Sometime, somewhere, yes, some sweet day,
Where sin and sorrow have passed away,
With joy in our hearts, and songs on our tongues,
We’ll rest in our Savior some sweet day.

Sometime, somewhere, yes, some glad morn,
Where cloud nor mist bedim the fair dawn,
There light from the throne, the light of God’s Son,
Shall fall on our faces some sweet day.

Sometime, somewhere, yes, some glad day,
We’ll join the blood-washed, blissful as they,
To sing the new song and praise the dear name,
Of our blest Redeemer, some sweet day.
