On that Day (on that halleljuah day)

Water spurting out of the middle of a fountain in a spring garden.   On that day, on that halleluia day, On that day, on that halleluia day, There’ll be singin’, there’ll be shoutin’, And joy flows like a fountain on that day. 1 We’ll see the holy city there; the new Jerusalem. No more sorrow, no more cryin’. No more death, no more pain. 2 Twelve gates to the kingdom we shall see; all nations will walk as one. Lifting our voices, claiming our choices. Glory and honour shall be. 3 No need of the sun or moon to shine; the glory of God is there. Darkness to light, God’s face in our sight. Joy from God’s love we will share. Final chorus: On that day, on that halleluia day, On that day, on that halleluia day, There’ll be singin’, there’ll be shoutin’, And joy flows like a fountain. Joy flows like a fountain. Joy flows like a fountain on that day, on that day.
This modern Gospel-style hymn about resurrection was written by American high-school music teacher, parish music director and liturgical musician and composer Kate Cuddy.

It was first published in 1997 by GIA Publications, Inc, and was included in the second and third editions of Gather Comprehensive. A choral arrangement by Cuddy and Gary Daigle has also been published.

It is set to an unnamed tune, also by Cuddy. This has a 4/4 time signature. In the key of F, the first few notes are C D F, F C A c AG FF_.

Chorus:
On that day, on that halleluia day,
On that day, on that halleluia day,
There’ll be singin’, there’ll be shoutin’,
And joy flows like a fountain on that day.

1 We’ll see the holy city there; the new Jerusalem.

2 Twelve gates to the kingdom we shall see; all nations will walk as one.

3 No need of the sun or moon to shine; the glory of God is there.
