Hi LindaSen,

Are these the ones you're looking for?

I never thought I'd see the day, when you came to kneel and pray
I never thought that I would see, the church-house filled to capacity
And outside the door there's more, who have never come before
Oh what a shame that Jesus came, one day before

And you came one day too late, yes, just one day too late
Jesus came and you've been left behind, you will be left behind
Yesterday you couldn't find time for Jesus on your mind
You finally came to call His name, one day too late

You tried to live the best you could, you tried to do the things you should
But when it came to serving God, you said, "I still have time to wait"
Now it's all turned around, time for Jesus now you've found
How sad to think that you found the time, but one day too late

God bless,
Steve

Hi LindaSen,

My husband found the sound trac to this song at www.bensonsound.com.  He had been looking for it for months and I think he was starting to think he was crazy.  His brother called today and gave him this web sight.  It's where he buys a lot of his tracs and low and behold they have it.  Good luck.

It was LuLu Roman from Hee Haw fam.  The reason I know this is that in the late 70's I had the album.  I haven't seen it in many years so several years ago I emailed her...and she emailed me back.  She said it wasn't in print any longer but m,aybe I could find it on EBAY.  Still looking.  Didn't she have a wonderful voice???  If you find the album or anything please let me know.  Thanks

"One Day Too Late" Lanny Wolfe Trio

I never tho't I'd see the day
when you'd come to kneel and pray:
I never tho't that I would see,
the church house filled to capacity;
and outside the door there's more
who have never come before; Oh what a shame that Jesus came
one day before!

Chorus:
And you came one day too late, one day too late,
Jesus came and you've been left behind to wait
Yesterday you couldn't find time for Jesus on your mind
You finally came to call His name one day too late .

You tried to live the best you could;
Tried to do the things you should;
But when it came to serving God,
You said,"I still have time to wait";
But now it's all -- turned around,
Time to serve Him now you've found;
How sad the fate: you found the time one day too late.

Chorus:
You came just one day too late, one day too late,
Jesus came and you've been left behind to wait!
Yesterday you couldn't find time for Jesus on your mind
You finally came to call His name one day too late .

I had an eight track in the seventies Artist Jim Sunderworth two songs I remember very well. One Day too Late, and Statue Of Liberty. I wish so much that I had that music today. I played it until I wore it out.

I had a copy of this song that my mom recorded from a radio station in Atlanta Ga back in the late 80's. It was sang by a group called The Camerons according to the DJ. They were from Scottland. It was awesome because there was a man who spoke throughtout the song with words that put a mental picture of the way things will most likely be on that day. I have misplaced the cassett and have tried to find info on this group, but have had no luck.
