Some day the silver cord will break

Some day the silver cord will break,
And I no more as now shall sing;
But, O the joy when I shall wake
Within the presence of the King!
  And I shall see Him face to face,
And tell the story, saved by grace:
And I shall see Him face to face,
  And tell the story, saved by grace.
Some day my earthly house will fall,
I cannot tell how soon ’twill be,
But this I know—my All in all
Has now a place with Him for me.
Or some day when my Lord will come,
And called to meet Him I’ll be blest,
He then will say to me, “Well done,”
And I shall enter into rest.
Some day, till then I’ll watch and wait,
My lamp all trimmed and burning bright,
That when my Savior I will greet,
My faith will then be changed to sight.

Truly some of these hymns prepare your heart as a believer ready to meet the Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. God bless the author and his generation.

I loved this song since childhood, when things turn upside down it always remind me that I'm only a pass by in this world. That my Lord and Savior awaits me.

Fanny believed in the rapture of the church. She is still encouraging us today to watch and stay ready as Matthew 25 parable of the 10 virgins. That is the Scripture that goes along with keeping your lamp all trimmed and burning. This is the Scripture for meeting Jesus in the air-

And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died. We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet him ahead of those who have died. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the believers who have died will rise from their graves. Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever. So encourage each other with these words.

1 Thessalonians 4:13‭-‬18

The amazing thing is that Fanny has been in heaven since 1915, and she is going to be receiving her spiritual body along with the rest of the Saints.

What a blessing to know that after the misery of this life there is a heaven! May I be faithful and I want to encourage others to be faithful so we can truly see Jesus face to face and live with Him forever in a peaceful place.

This hymn is of when a person meets the Lord Jesus in the Second Coming of Him to Earth. ,

But how does, in the words of the Old Testament prophet, 'prepare to meet thy God'?.

The Lord Jesus first came to be the Saviour of His people (Matthew 1 verse 21). He did this by living a sinless life, taking away the sins of the world in His body on the cross, and rising from the dead for us. If people repent and believe the above work of Jesus, they shall be born again of the Holy Spirit (John chapter 3 verse 3), and be on this way to Heaven.

Only when a person is born again can they look forward to meet Him face to face (1 John 3 verses 1 and 2).

What a beautiful song! The thrill to see her Saviour is reflected in every stanza of this song. An inspiring song to renew our hope.

This was my grandmother's favorite hymn. Her grandparents sang it when they homesteaded in Nebraska, singing at pioneer gatherings in the 1870's.
