One day Jesus

I love how certain songs seem to stick in your mind all day once you've heard it (like it's a small world). But this one is great. We've been singing it in choir practice for a while, and the day is coming (Sunday i think) when we are actually going to sing it in church...
Here are the lyrics:
Some days drag and some days fly. And some days I think of the day I'll die. Some days fill me and some days drain.
And one day Jesus will call my name. Chorus One day Jesus will call my name As days go by, 'hope I don't stay the same. I wanna get so close to Him that it's no big change, On that day that Jesus calls my name!
Most days I pray but some days I curse. A said number of days I put myself first. But it's not what I do, the cross made that plain. And one day Jesus will call my name!
Very simple, but oh so true. The past 3 or 4 weeks have been very evident of that. Some days, some mornings, I wake up totally refreshed, some I just want to stay in bed. One of my girls kind of mentioned this tonight at dinner. I always say "I want to read more of Your Word" but then I don't. Oh, I'm not looking forward to dying, I am just looking forward to being with Jesus.
One of the verses that came to mind as I was driving home after choir practice tonight is found in Galatians: - "Walk by the Spirit, and you will not live by the flesh" - or something like that.
If I wake everyday with those words of the Word on my lips and in my mind, than each day will be like the lyrics of that song - I wanna get so close to Him that its no big change, on the day when Jesus calls my name.

Just on a side note...it took me nearly 15 minutes to find the lyrics online. Good gracious!

I have been looking for this song since I heard it 22 years ago and wondered if you know who sings it?
I actually remember the lyrics but I would like to have a recording of it. My email is plwulf1@yahoo.com Thank you.

This song is off the Chain. It’s been on my mind since I was 10. When I have nothing to type or hand write -- I find my self typing this song -- I did that this morning and here I was looking for the lyrics, and then found you -- oh well still looking for the rest of the song --or is that all? Thanks for sharing -- At least I got one thing straight -- I always sang - " I wanna get so close to him -that it's no big shame" instead of change. I guess I do not want it to be a shame either.
May God bless. If you have the rest of the Lyrics -- can you e-mail them to me? qlilley@hotmail.com

Thanks

This is on a Wayne Watson album from the early '80's. Go to his website and you can probably find the recording!

One Day Jesus Will Call My Name

By Phil McHugh

Verse 1
Some days drag and some days fly
And some days I think of the day I’ll die
Some days fill me and some days drain
And one day Jesus will call my name

Chorus
One day Jesus will call my name
As days go by, ‘hope I don’t stay the same.
I wanna get so close to Him that it’s no big change,
On that day that Jesus calls my name!

Verse 2
Most days I pray, but some days I curse.
A said number of days I put myself first.
But it’s not what I do, the cross made that plain.
And one day Jesus will call my name!

Chorus
One day Jesus will call my name
As days go by, ‘hope I don’t stay the same.
I wanna get so close to Him that it’s no big change,
On that day that Jesus calls my name!

One day Jesus will call my name
As days go by, ‘hope I don’t stay the same.
I wanna get so close to Him that it’s no big change,
On that day that Jesus calls my name!

One day Jesus will call my name
As days go by, ‘hope I don’t stay the same.
I wanna get so close to Him that it’s no big change,
On that day that Jesus calls my name!
