I wonder if you mean get to Zermatt and back to Zurich in a day? The SBB timetable will show you the fastest route from Zurich to Zermatt which will take just over 3 hours. Not super scenic though.
Assuming you are asking about a one way trip . . . if you want to include the Gotthard Panorama Express route boat ride from Luzern to Flüelen then you can still get there in a day if you can get to Luzern in time to catch 9:12 am ferry. Then from Flüelen you can catch connections to pick up Glacier Express at Andermatt to get you to Zermatt by 5:10pm. See screenshots from SBB mobile app attached.
A very nice boat ride and two scenic trains all in one day. Depends if you mind all the changes along the way.
You could also go via Chur as Lucas suggests or for a different route altogether via Luzern, Interlaken OST, Kandersteg and Brig combining parts of the Golden Pass Route and the Lötschberger Express and the Glacier Express route Brig to Zermatt.
There are always many ways to get from A to B in Switzerland. Enjoy your trip.
