Someday / Trials Dark

somedaySeems like we’ve been singing more songs about heaven lately since our friend Kevin’s passing.  This is a recording from our worship team rehearsal of a song we sang at church a couple weeks ago.  It’s a mashup of two songs actually, Someday and When the Morning Comes (otherwise known as “Trials Dark“).  Someday we don’t know where came from (it’s been sung in our fellowship for a couple decades or so), and Trials Dark is an old time song written by Charles Tindley back in 1905.  We start with doing Someday adding one part at a time, then go to the verses of Trials Dark with using Someday as the chorus.  They work really well together with a message of where we are all headed.  Lyrics and chords are below.

Someday – Trials Dark – rehearsal recording

SOMEDAY / TRIALS DARK

soprano, alto, basses:
Someday, someday, someday
Someday

Tenors:
Got to be ready when he calls my name
Got to be ready when he calls my name
Got to be ready when he calls my name
Someday

Trials dark on every hand
And we cannot understand
All the ways that God will lead us
To that promised land.
But He’ll guide us with his eye
And we’ll follow ‘till we die.
We will overcome it all
And see Him someday, singing

We are sometimes destitute
Of the things that life demands
Want of shelter and of food
In a barren land.
But we’re trusting in the Lord
And according to his word
We will overcome it all
And see Him someday, singing

Temptations, hidden snares
Often take us unaware
And our hearts are made to bleed
For each word or deed
And we wonder why the test
When we try to do our best
We will overcome it all
And see Him someday, singing

(The recording is in E:  chords  E   /    B    /  A   /   E   – you can also do it as high as G:  chords G  /  D   /  C   /  G)
