I have started on my journey
To that better land above,
Hallelujah! in that morning I’ll be there;
I am walking with my Savior,
Singing of His wondrous love,
Hallelujah! in the morning I’ll be there.

Refrain

I’ll be there, yes, I’ll be there,
When that morning breaks eternal, bright and fair;
Come and go with me to glory
Where we’ll rest forevermore,
Hallelujah! in that morning I’ll be there.

If I trust my precious Savior
And His blessèd word obey,
Hallelujah! in that morning I’ll be there;
He has promised to be with me
And to lead me all the way,
Hallelujah! in that morning I’ll be there.

Refrain

Then when this short life is over
And my work on earth is done,
Hallelujah! in that morning I’ll be there;
I will enter life eternal
There to wear a shining crown,
Hallelujah! in that morning I’ll be there.

Refrain

Come and go with me, dear brother,
To that blessèd home above,
Hallelujah! in that morning I’ll be there;
There we’ll meet our blessèd Savior
And all those we used to know,
Hallelujah! in that morning I’ll be there.

Refrain
