One Day

Hymn lyrics by J. Wilbur Chapman,
Music by Charles H. Marsh
Verse 1
  • One day when heaven was filled with His praises,
  • One day when sin was as black as could be,
  • Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin,
  • Dwelt among men, my Example is He!
  • Living, He loved me; dying, He saved me;
  • Buried, He carried my sins far away;
  • Rising, He justified freely forever;
  • One day He’s coming—O glorious day!
Verse 2
  • 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!
Verse 3
  • 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 Savior is He!
Verse 4
  • 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!
Verse 5
  • 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 Savior, this Jesus is mine!
