When the Lord shall come in glory
On the coronation day,
When its everlasting light
On us is dawning,
All the clouds of time shall vanish,
And the shadows flee away,
When we waken in the
Resurrection morning.

Refrain

In the morning, blessèd morning,
O the glory of the
Resurrection morning!
We shall gather at His side,
In His likeness satisfied,
When we waken in the
Resurrection morning.

When the ties so sadly severed
Shall be reunited there,
Where shall enter nevermore
A pain or sorrow,
We shall know His joy excelleth
Every longing, every prayer,
When we waken on the blest,
Eternal morrow.

Refrain

When the fight with sin is over,
And the victors robed in white
Meet in that blest home where harps
Are ever ringing,
They shall praise the mighty Savior
Who has given life and light;
Unto Him who loved us,
All the ransomed singing.

Refrain
