Oh, weary pilgrim, lift your head:
For joy cometh in the morning!
For God in His own Word hath said
That joy cometh in the morning!

Refrain

Joy cometh in the morning!
Joy cometh in the morning!
Weeping may endure for a night,
But joy cometh in the morning!

Ye trembling saints, dismiss your fears:
For joy cometh in the morning!
Oh, weeping mourner, dry your tears:
For joy cometh in the morning!

Refrain

Let every burdened soul look up:
For joy cometh in the morning!
And every trembling sinner hope:
For joy cometh in the morning!

Refrain

Our God shall wipe all tears away:
For joy cometh in the morning!
Sorrow and sighing flee away:
For joy cometh in the morning!

Refrain
