1 A better day is coming,
When truth and right shall reign,
When hearts shall know no sorrow,
But sing in glad refrain:

Refrain:
A better day, a better day,
A better day is coming on;
A better day, a better day,
A better day is coming.

2 A better day is coming,—
Oh, see the golden beams!—
A day of light and glory;
Let each heart catch the gleams. [Refrain]

3 A better day is coming,
A day of perfect rest,—
The long-expected pleasure
Of reigning with the blest. [Refrain]

4 Oh, send the tidings over
The world from shore to shore;
The glorious day is dawning,
When sin shall reign no more. [Refrain]
