110. Joy cometh in the morning

1 Oh, weary pilgrim, lift your head,
For joy cometh in the morning!
For God in his own word hath said
That joy cometh in the morning!

Chorus:
Joy cometh in the morning!
Joy cometh in the morning!
Weeping may endure,
May endure for a night,
But joy cometh in the morning.

2 Ye feeble saints, dismiss your fears,
For joy cometh in the morning!
And weeping mourners, dry your tears,
For joy cometh in the morning. [Chorus]

3 Let every tearful eye look up,
For joy cometh in the morning!
And every trembling sinner hope,
For joy cometh in the morning! [Chorus]

4 Our God will wipe our tears away,
For joy cometh in the morning!
Sorrow and sighing flee away,
For joy cometh in the morning! [Chorus]
