And I would see my Friend; Dangers and troubles would end If Jesus should come today.Refain: Glad day, glad day! Is it the crowning day? I’ll live for today, nor anxious be; Jesus, my Lord I soon shall see; Glad day, glad day! Is it the crowning day?2. I may go home today, Glad day, glad day! Seemeth I hear their song, Hail to the radiant throng, If I should go home today.3. Why should I anxious be? Glad day, glad day! Lights appear on the shore, Storms will affright nevermore, For He is “at hand” today.4. Faithful I’ll be today, Glad day, glad day! And I will freely tell Why I should love Him so well, For He is my all today.
