Lyrics

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!

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!
