1 In the morning of the waking,
In the dawn of Jubile year,
When the Master comes for jewels,
And in brightness they appear;
I could meet the Saviour smiling,
Hear him call me all his own;
I would bear the palm triumphant,
Wearing life’s eternal crown.

Refrain:
In the morning of the waking,
In the dawn of Jubile year,
When the Master comes for jewels,
And in brightness they appear.

2 In the resurrection morning,
And the dead shall all awake;
When the King comes in His beauty,
And in terror earth shall quake;
In the one complete division,
As to right or left we go,
I would hear the Master calling,
“Come, my glory you shall know.” [Refrain]

3 In that day of all the others,
That this earth can ever know,
And old Time shall be no longer,
And men go to weal or woe;
May thy right hand be my portion,
That with Thee I may abide,
Mingling smiles, and shouts, and praises,
With the blest ones at thy side. [Refrain]

4 Well I know, for thou hast told me,
All this fitness I must gain,
In thy Blood and its lone cleansing,
As my heart yields to thy reign;
Oh! what love did’st thus redeem me,
Oh! what sorrow thou didst bear;
Thus to give me this salvation,
Heav’ns own purity to share. [Refrain]
