There Will Be A Day....

I've been praying with and reflecting on this song a lot the last couple of days. Particularly as we move toward Easter, I'm reminded that 'the day to come' is already here! We just have to live it through faith - but right now, the burdens of this place vanish as we see Jesus face to face - in the Eucharist, in one another, in the community of faith... in our walk toward Easter.

...by Jeremy Camp.

I try to hold on to this world with everything I have -
But I feel the weight of what it brings,
and the hurt that trys to grab,
The many trials that seem to never end...
His word declares this truth,
that we will enter in this rest with wonders anew.

But I hold on to this hope
and the promise that He brings
That there will be a place with no more suffering!

There will be a day
with no more tears,
no more pain,
and no more fears.
There will be a day
when the burdens of this place,
will be no more,
we’ll see Jesus face to face
But until that day,
we’ll hold on to You always!

I know the journey seems so long -
You feel your walking on your own.
But there has never been a step
Where you’ve walked out all alone.

Troubled soul don’t lose your heart!
Cause joy and peace he brings
And the beauty that’s in store
Outweighs the hurt of life’s sting!

But I hold on to this hope
and the promise that He brings
That there will be a place with no more suffering!

There will be a day
with no more tears,
no more pain,
and no more fears.
There will be a day
when the burdens of this place,
will be no more,
we’ll see Jesus face to face
But until that day,
we’ll hold on to You always!


I can’t wait until that day
Where the very One I’ve lived for always
will wipe away the sorrow that I’ve faced.
To touch the scars that rescued me
from a life of shame and misery
this is why this is why I sing….

There will be a day
with no more tears,
no more pain,
and no more fears.
There will be a day
when the burdens of this place,
will be no more,
we’ll see Jesus face to face
But until that day,
we’ll hold on to You always...

There will be a day.
