    Chorus   Table of Contents     Battle Hymn of the Republic

Burton, Annie L.
Memories of childhood's slavery days

- MY FAVORITE HYMNS
- Some Day the Silver Cord will break


Some Day the Silver Cord will break


Some day the silver cord will break,
And I no more as now shall sing;
But, O, the joy when I shall wake
Within the palace of the King!

And I shall see Him face to face,
And tell the story--Saved by grace.

Some day my earthly house will fall,
I cannot tell how soon 'twill be,
But this I know--my All in All
Has now a place in heaven for me.

Some day; till then I'll watch and wait,
My lamp all trimmed and burning bright,
That when my Saviour ope's the gate.
My soul to Him may take its flight.
