Sunrise Tomorrow


In 1932 William C. Poole a wrote beautiful hymn. I can't remember all the words, but I remember my grandfather singing it when I was a child. I loved him dearly and when he passed in 1962, I remember that this song helped me to understand that he had gone home.

When I shall come to the end of my way
When I shall rest at the close of the day
When welcome home I shall hear Jesus say
Oh that will be sunrise for me.

Sunrise tomorrow
Sunrise tomorrow
Sunrise in glory is waiting for me
Sunrise tomorrow
Sunrise tomorrow
Sunrise with Jesus for eternity.

When life is over and daylight has passed
In heaven's harbor my anchor is cast
When I see Jesus my Savior at last
Oh that will be sunrise for me.

Sunrise tomorrow
Sunrise tomorrow
Sunrise in glory is waiting for me
Sunrise tomorrow
Sunrise tomorrow
Sunrise with Jesus for eternity.

The day my grandfather passed he asked me to sing with him. I was twelve and too busy playing with my friend. I didn't have time to sing with him at a singing in the afternoon. One day I'll sing with my grandfather, Big Tom, again, and it will be everything I missed when he was here on earth.

Jesus says, "Welcome home". He waits with arms wide open. And in that moment my homecoming will be more than any pen could describe.
