I am waiting for the morning when the Lord will come;
I expect Him every moment to appear;
He will gather home His bride, He a feast will then provide;
He is coming, and the time is near.


In the morning, in the morning,
In the morning when He comes, we shall see Him;
We will know each other there, in the home so bright and fair;
We shall in the glory share, in the morning.

In the morning when we gather by the crystal sea,
We shall sing the songs of Moses and the Lamb;
He will wipe our tears away, in the bright and happy day;
He is coming! bless His holy name!


We will cast our crowns and trophies at His piercèd feet;
We shall bear the palms of victory evermore;
And with harps of brightest gold, ever will His love be told;
We will sing upon that happy shore.
