One of these days . . .

8 Jan

Whenever I listen to this song by the Christian contemporary group FFH (Far From Home), it always makes me think of Sammy and others who are challenged by physical bodies which limit their abilities and freedom.

One of these I’m gonna fly
Over the mountain
One of theses days I’m gonna ride
On the silver lining
One of these days I’m gonna witness
All I’ve been missing
One of these days

One of these days I’m gonna do
All the things I’ve never done
I’m gonna finish all the races
That I’ve run but I’ve never won
I’m gonna see a million faces
And recognize every one
One of these days

One of these days
I’m gonna see the hands
that took the nails for me
One of these days
I’m gonna hold the keys
to the mansion built for me
One of these days
I’m gonna walk the streets of gold
that were paved for me
One of these days
I’m gonna see my Savior face to face
One of these days

One of these days I’m gonna see
Just what became of me
On the day that I believed
And you took myself from me
And I believe that I will see
What I’d have been if you didn’t save me
One of these days

One of these days I’m gonna talk
With all the saints that have gone before
In their sandals I will walk
And we will sit upon the shore
And I will learn all the things
That I never knew before
All this and more

One of these days I’m gonna be
In a place where there’s no more need
No more pain and no more grief
No more foolish disbelief
Ah the joy that there will be
When at last we finally see
One of these days

I’m gonna see my Jesus face to face
One of these days
