Is It The Crowning Day?

This past Thursday would have been my Mom and Dad’s 60th anniversary. I was talking to Mom this morning and, as she told me again of how Dad flew out to Kansas to see her, one of her memories of that visit was him singing the song below. Dad loved the Lord and I am sure the song he had in his heart that day has been a sweet memory for Mom – and such a HAPPY song too!  Oh, by the way…Dad “popped the question” on this visit as well. That just may have attributed to the spring in his step and song in his heart…just a little…  😉

Jesus may come today
Glad day, glad day!
And I would see my Friend;
Dangers and troubles would end
If Jesus would come today.

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?

I may go home today
Glad day, glad day!
It seems I hear their song;
Hail to the radiant throng!
If I should go home today.

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?

Why should I anxious be?
Glad day, glad day!
Lights appear on the shore,
Storms will affright nevermore,
For He is “at hand” today.

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?

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.

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?
