The last lovely morning,
All blooming and fair,
Is fast onward fleeting,
And soon will appear.


While the mighty, mighty, mighty trump
Sounds, Come, come away;
Oh, let us be ready
To hail the glad day.

And when that bright morning
In splendor shall dawn,
Our tears shall be ended,
Our sorrows all gone.


The Bridegroom from glory
To earth shall descend,
Ten thousand bright angels
Around Him attend.


The grave shall be opened,
The dead shall arise,
And with the Redeemer
Mount up to the skies.


The saints, then immortal,
In glory shall reign,
The Bride with the Bridegroom
Forever remain.
