It’s Friday, But Sonday’s Coming

It’s Friday of the Holy Week, and although many Bible scholars believe that the day Jesus was crucified was on Wednesday, the majority considers this day as the “saddest” day throughout the week.

Why? Friday is deemed the day when people during Jesus’ time lost all hope after seeing their  Savior crucified. Today, people all over the world hold traditions to commemorate this event. Many of these traditions are actually not necessary. Christ may have died on Calvary but a new day awaits when He displayed His victory over man’s greatest fear – death.

In the Philippines, we call this day Biyernes Santo, sometimes used as an idiomatic expression of loneliness and hopelessness. With the sureness of resurrection coming after His death, it is better to use this day to thank and offer prayers and songs of praise to God Who sacrificed Himself to give us our ultimate need – salvation.

No need to worry, to be lonely, to lose hope. Jesus Christ gives peace and joy.

May the lyrics of this song provide comfort and joy as you go about your day.

Jesus walked the road to Calv’ry paid the sinner’s debt

The disciples’ hearts were broken, Jesus’ mother wept

On that dark and dreary day, God the Father turned away

See the hope of all the ages silent in the grave

It’s Friday, but Sonday’s comin’ 

The sky is dark, but soon another day is done

And it’s not over yet, King Jesus will prevail

O yes! It’s Friday, but Sonday’s comin’

Every day the wicked prosper, good men suffer pain

Satan seems to gain the vict’ry, mocking Jesus’ name

Many Christian suffer so, and their tears of sorrow flow

Is the God of all the ages, still on heaven’s throne?

It’s Friday, but Sonday’s comin’ 

The sky is dark, but soon another day is done

And it’s not over yet, King Jesus will prevail

O yes! It’s Friday, but Sonday’s comin’

When you come to this dark valley, feeling pain and lost

Just remember Christ the Savior on His rugged cross

 Tho He died in darkest gloom, Jesus left that empty tomb

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Christ is coming soon!

It’s Friday, but Sonday’s comin’ 

The sky is dark, but soon another day is done

And it’s not over yet, King Jesus will prevail

O yes! It’s Friday, but Sonday’s comin’
