Lyrics for two songs

Post by Old Fashioned Music » Sat Jul 14, 2018 1:41 am

Does anyone have the full lyrics to these two songs?

"In that City So Bright"
All I know is a couple of words of the chorus -

And around God's great throne....

Tell my people press on
Just a little farther on

Pastor Tommy Bates sings it.

The other song is "On Some Happy Morning"

I think this is the First verse
I ain't gonna do no packing
I don't have time to wait
I'll fall asleep in the cradle of love
Never feel the sting of death
When I get home
Some wonderful day

Chorus
On some happy morning
On some happy day
Gonna step right out on the wings of love
I'm gonna fly away
When I get home
Some wonderful day

Hi Old Fashioned Music

I have found one recording of In That City So Bright
on Pastor Tommy Bates Facebook page but
the recording is so poor I can't decipher the words
I also found half a dozen recordings of On Some Happy Morning
AKA I'm Going Home Some Wonderful Day
each with its own take on the verses and chorus
and all very poor audio so if you can supply a clear recording
I'll take another try

I kept working at the lyrics for On Some Happy Morning
and guessed at the two clearest recordings.

Here's the first:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFQshcj_Gh8

Chorus
On some happy morning
On some happy day
Gonna step right out on the wings of love
I’m gonna fly away
When I get home
Some wonderful day

Well I ain't gonna do no packing
Won’t have time to wait
ain’t nothing I have but the Love of God
to get me through that gate
When I get home
Some wonderful day

Chorus

Gonna stand by the chilly Jordon
Gonna take Him by the hand
Gonna lead me over to the other side
Gonna stand in the promise land
When I get home
Some wonderful day

Chorus

Gonna stroll down through that city
Gonna walk on the street of gold
Gonna stand on the banks of the River of Life
Where the half has never been told
When I get home
Some wonderful day

<><><><>
and here's the second I worked on:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljCvwDLHQ6I

Chorus
On some happy morning
On some happy day
I’ll step right out on the wings of love
I’m gonna fly away
I’m a-goin’ home
Some wonderful day

Well I ain't gonna do no packing
I aint got time to waste
There’s nothing but the Love of God in my heart
to get me through the gates
I’m a-goin’ home
Some wonderful day

Chorus

When I come to chilly Jordon
He’ll take Him by the hand
He’ll pick me up, carry me on,
Set me in the promise land
I’m a-goin’ home
Some happy/wonderful day
