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.

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]
