  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!
    • Refrain:
      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—oh, glorious day!
  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!
  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!
  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!
  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!
