We'll Soon Be Done With Troubles and Trials Lyrics


Some of these days I'm going home
Where no sorrows ever come,
(We'll soon be done)
We'll soon be done with troubles and trials;
(Troubles and trials)
Safe from Heartaches, pain and care,
We shall all that glory share,
(And I'm gonna)
Sit down beside my Jesus,
(Lord, I'm gonna)
Sit down and rest a little while.

Chorus:
(We'll soon be done)
We'll soon be done with troubles and trials,
(Troubles and trials. In that home)
Yes, in that home on the other side,
(On the other side, and I'm gonna)
Shake glad hands with the elders,
(Lord, and)
Tell my kindred good morning,
(Then I'm gonna)
Sit down beside my Jesus,
(Lord, I'm)
Gonna sit down and rest a li'l while.

2. Kindred and friends now wait for me,
Soon their faces I shall see,
(We'll soon be done)
We'll soon be done with troubles and trials;
(Troubles and trials)
'Tis a home of Life so fair
And we'll all be gathered there,
(And I'm gonna)
Sit down beside my Jesus,
(Lord, I'm gonna)
Sit down and rest a little while.
Chorus:

3. I shall behold his blessed face,
I shall feel his matchless grace,
(We'll soon be done)
We'll soon be done with troubles and trials;
(Troubles and trials)
O what peace and joy sublime
In that home of love divine,
(And I'm gonna)
Sit down beside my Jesus,
(Lord, I'm gonna)
Sit down and rest a little while.
Chorus:


End:
Gonna sit down and rest a li'l while,
(Gonna sit down and rest a li'l while.)

Heaven Came Down and Glory Filled My Soul Hymn

Story Behind Heaven Came Down  Heaven Came Down is a hymn that is of recent origin as it was written in 1961 by John W Peterson. It draws its inspiration from a testimony delivered by an old man named Jim at Montrose Bible Conference Grounds, Pennsylvania. During the testimony talked of his conversion experience. In the testimony he used the phrase, "It seemed like Heaven came down and glory filled my soul." It is this phrase that inspired John W Pearson to write a song using this phrase later that week.  John W Peterson wrote over a thousand hymns but it is this song that has touched and continues to touch millions of Christians all over the world. He died on September 20, 2006, at the age of 84 after suffering from prostate cancer. It is so sweet to entrust and surrender our lives to our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. Heaven does literally come down into our hearts when we do that. John W Peterson Heaven Came Down and Glory Filled My Soul

Popular and Old Hymns Lyrics and History

This blog exists to share the history and lyrics of popular hymns and old hymns that people have come to love over the years. It is only when you go behind what led to the authors writing these songs that you start to appreciate the message of these songs. While preaching is still the most effective way of spreading the gospel, Christian music has helped in "seasoning"  the presentation of the gospel. It has in some cases even led people to Christ on its own. I hope that this blog will through the stories behind these old and popular hymns help us to draw closer to Christ.

I prefer music that focuses on the message rather than the instruments used. I am not a fan of drowning the voice in the noise of the instruments. I want the people to hear the message of the songs. Christian music for me is not about entertainment b

On Christ The Solid Rock I Stand (My Hope Is Built On Nothing Less) Lyrics and Story

My Hope Is Built On Nothing Else / On Christ The Solid Rock I Stand History My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less or On Christ The Solid Rock I Stand is the best-known hymn of Edward Mote who wrote it in 1834. The original title of this hymn was, "The Immutable Basis for a Sinner's Hope". Edward Mote was the pastor of Rehoboth Baptist Church in Horsham West Sussex in the United Kingdom. It looks as if the inspiration for this hymn came from Christ parable of the wise and foolish builders. In the parable, Christ speaks of the foolish builder who built his house on sinking sand while the wise builder built his on solid rock. As you would imagine a storm easily swept away the one built on sand. Edward Mote - On Christ the Solid Rock Christ is the solid rock upon which we can build our house of faith. Any other foundation is like one on sand and will ultimately fail. On the authorship of this song Mr. Mote's explanation, communicated to the Gospel Herald, is
