Refrain

What a morning that will be, Hallelujah!
What a morning! What a morning!
When our eyes the King shall see, Hallelujah!
What a morning that will be!

When all the clouds of darkness break,
When all the dead from dust awake,
And all the just His likeness take,
Oh, what a morning that will be!

Full Chorus

Then, awake and swell the song, Hallelujah!
Joyful notes of praise prolong, Hallelujah!
When we join the ransomed throng, Hallelujah!
What a day of love and peace that will be.

Refrain

The dreams of earth will soon be o’er,
And death and sorrow come no more,
When we awake on yon fair shore,
Oh, what a morning that will be!

Full Chorus

Refrain

No waking doubts, no dark’ning fears,
No long goodbyes in grief and tears,
But joy supreme thro’ endless years,
Oh, what a morning that will be!

Full Chorus

Refrain

Oh, come away to that bright land,
Before the throne of God we’ll stand,
And sing with all the ransomed band,
Oh, what a morning that will be!
