One Day

When getting together the hymn for last week, I was looking at the hymn writer bio to see if there were any other of his songs that I knew. One of the songs on NetHymnal was One Day. The tune didn't sound familiar  but the words were. Casting Crowns has a modern version of this song titled Glorious Day.

One Day
words by J. Wilbur Chapman

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! 

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 Savior 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 belov├Ęd ones bringing; 
Glorious Savior, this Jesus is mine!

Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation. ~Hebrews 9:28

Beautiful lyrics. I remember playing this for church services when I was in college.

There is a young lady that plays the piano in our church and this song is one of her favorites to play. It has such great words. Thanks for sharing :) Hugs!
