My Sunday Song – “There Will Come A Day” by Faith Hill

For My Sunday Song #22, my wife has selected “There Will Come A Day” by Faith Hill.  I will now turn it over to my wife…

I will never forget seeing Faith Hill perform this song on television after the 9/11 attacks. She, along with numerous other artists, participated in a fundraising telethon with all net proceeds benefitting the United Way’s September 11th Telethon Fund. The combination of her powerful voice and the message that we can all relate to within the first four lines (especially after watching the evening news from any city) makes this one of my all time favorite songs. This song also paints the perfect picture of that amazing day when we will meet our maker. Regardless of what is going on in our world we can count on the fact that “there will come a day”.  

This song is from her 4th studio album Breathe released in November 1999. Two things about “favorite songs” of mine to keep in mind as you read over the next 8 weeks and get to know me: 1) when I find something I like, I play it over and over and over, and 2) if I’m in the car and I’m alone, I sing really loud and there’s probably some dancing in there too. I’ve always done these two things, they aren’t things that happened with age and nope, I didn’t care then if people saw me singing and dancing in the car and I don’t care now.

“There Will Come A Day”

It’s not easy
Trying to understand
How the world can be so cold
Stealing the souls of man
Cloudy skies rain down
On all your dreams
You wrestle with the fear and doubt
Sometimes it’s hard, but you gotta believeThere’s a better place
Where our Father waits
And every tear
He’ll wipe away
The darkness will be gone
The weak shall be strong
Hold on to your faith
There will come a day
There will come a day

Wars are raging
Lives are scattered
Innocence is lost
And hopes are shattered
The old are forgotten
The children are forsaken
In this world we’re living in
Isn’t anything sacred

There’s a better place
Where our Father waits
And every tear
He’ll wipe away
The darkness will be gone
The weak shall be strong
Hold on to your faith
There will come a day
There will come a day

Song will ring out
Down those golden streets
The voices of earth
The angels will sing
Every knee will bow
Sin will have no trace
In the glory of His amazing grace
Every knee will bow
Sin will have no trace
In the glory of His amazing grace
There will come a day
There will come a day
Oh, there will come a day
There will come a day
I know there’s coming a day
Coming a day
