Someday He'll Whisper My Name Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

Verse 1:
Bitter and better, the likeness of letters,
So close, but so far apart;
One word's a warning, the other's a blessing,
Both words describing the heart.

Verse 2:
With keen ears I listen when He sends a message;
God can bring famine or fame.
Sweet words of Jesus can bring life eternal.
Some day He'll whisper my name.

Chorus:
Some day He'll whisper my name.
Some day He'll carry me home.
Some day He'll whisper my name.
Some day He'll call me His own.

(instrumental interlude of chorus)

Chorus:
Some day He'll whisper my name
Some day He'll carry me home.
Some day He'll whisper my name.
Some day He'll call me His own.

(instrumental chorus to end)
