Just for a Day

Post by Barethetone » Wed Jun 18, 2008 2:11 am

I'm looking for a song, especially the title. I believe it is a hymn, but I seem to be unable to find it. I believe the title to be "Just For a Day." The chorus says something like, just for a day a day will last forever....we will sit by the river just for a day. Sorry I can't be more help. Any assistance you can give is greatly appreciated!

God Bless!!

This might be the one you are looking for:

I'M GONNA REST BESIDE THE RIVER
WHERE THE SHADOWS NEVER FALL
AND THE CLOUDS WILL NEVER HIDE THE LIGHT OF DAY
WHERE THE LAMB WILL LIGHT THAT CITY
AND THE EVENING NEVER COME
AND I'M GONNA REST BESIDE THE RIVER JUST FOR A DAY.

CHORUS

JUST FOR A DAY AND A DAY WILL LAST FOREVER
AND THE DARKNESS OF A GLOOMY NIGHT WILL NEVER FALL AGAIN
I'LL SET QUITELY BY THE STREAM OF LIFE WHERE TIME CAN'T SLIP AWAY.
I'M GONNA REST BESIDE THE RIVER JUST FOR A DAY.

I WOULD LIKE TO TALK WITH MOTHER ABOUT THE HAPPY DAYS OF OLD
BUT TIME WON'T LET US LINGER LONG
I SEE HER DAYS SWIFTLY PASSING AND TOMORROW SHE MAY BE GONE
WE'RE GONNA TALK BESIDE THE RIVER MAMA WHEN WE GET HOME.
