"One Eternal Day"

"One eternal day" is a phrase from On Jordan's Stormy Banks I Stand by the 18th century Seventh Day Baptist hymnwriter Samuel Stennett. It refers to the "Sabbath rest" that believers will experience eternally in Christ's kingdom:

O’er all those wide extended plains
Shines one eternal day
There God the Son forever reigns,
And scatters night away.
I am bound for the promised land,
I am bound for the promised land;
Oh who will come and go with me?
I am bound for the promised land.
