timeless

Charley (AKA “Charlie”) Patton (c. 1881-1934), “Some Happy Day,” 1929

 

SOME HAPPY DAY

Some day, some happy day, from sin set free
I’ll live with Christ for ages, some day, some day

My trials will fewer be, some day, some day
When I shall have eternal home, some day, some day
Some day I’ll be in the entrance here, some day, some day

Adapted by Patton from “Some Day”, words by J. Graydon Hall, music by H. E. Barnett (Courtesy of YouTube)
