We are marching onward to the heav’nly land,
To meet each other in the morning;
We are pressing forward to the golden strand,
Where joy will crown us in the morning.

Refrain

In the morning, in the morning,
We will gather with the faithful in the morning;
Where the night of sorrow shall be rolled away,
And joy will crown us in the morning.

We are trav’ling onward from a world of care,
To meet each other in the morning;
Oh, the time is coming, we shall soon be there,
And joy will crown us in the morning.

Refrain

We are trav’ling onward, and the way grows bright,
We’ll meet each other in the morning;
Where our friends are waiting, at the gate of life,
And joy will crown us in the morning.

Refrain

Where the hills are blooming on the other shore,
We’ll meet each other in the morning!
Where the heart’s deep longing will be felt no more,
And joy will crown us in the morning.

Refrain

In the boundless rapture of a Savior’s love
We’ll meet each other in the morning;
Then we’ll sing His glory in the realms above,
And joy will crown us in the morning.
