When the night has fled away,
And we greet the better day,
What a time that will be!
When we see the mansions shine
In the city so divine,
What a time, what a happy time ’twill be!

Refrain

What a time that will be,
For the souls pure and free,
When around the throne we sing
To our everlasting king,
What a time that will be!
What a time that will be.

When along the streets of gold
Friends and dear ones we behold,
What a time that will be!
When we gather on the strand,
To uplift hosannas grand,
What a time, what a happy time ’twill be!

Refrain

When we know we are at home,
Nevermore to toil or roam,
What a time that will be!
When we first behold the face
Of the King who saves by grace,
What a time, what a happy time ’twill be!

Refrain
