One Day

One day when heaven was filled with His praises,
A                                      D
One day when sin was as black as could be,

Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin,
A                E  E7         A A7
Dwelt among men, my example is He!

D          A7                  D
Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me;
             G                 A7
Buried He carried my sins far away;
D               A7              D
Rising, He justified freely forever;
G            E7          A7       D
One day He’s coming — Oh glorious day!

One day they led Him up Calvary’s mountain,
One day they nailed Him to die on the tree;
Suffering anguish, despised and rejected:
Bearing our sins, my Redeemer is He!


One day they left Him alone in the garden,
One day He rested, from suffering free;
Angels came down o’er His tomb to keep vigil;
Hope of the hopeless, my Saviour is He!


One day the grave could conceal Him no longer,
One day the stone rolled away from the door;
Then He arose, over death He had conquered;
Now is ascended, my Lord evermore!


One day the trumpet will sound for His coming,
One day the skies with His glories will shine;
Wonderful day, my beloved ones bringing;
Glorious Saviour, this Jesus is mine!
