Hebrews 9:28
"So 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."

          One day when heaven was filled with His praises,
          One day when sin was as dark as could be,
          Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin:
          Dwelt amongst men, my example is He!

            Chorus
            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!

            Chorus
            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 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!

            Chorus
            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 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!

            Chorus
            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 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!

            Chorus
            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!
