Representative Text

1 Light is dawning, pilgrim,
O’er thy lonely way;
Lift thine eye with gladness—
See the rising day.

Then be cheerful, pilgrim,
Chase away thy gloom,
He shall light thy pathway,
Even through the tomb.

2 Jesus comes to cheer thee,
All thy journey through;
He will chase thy sorrow
Like the morning dew. [Refrain]

3 Yes! the night is passing—
Soon it will be gone,
For the hills are gilded
By the rising sun. [Refrain]

4 Weep no more, then Christian,
Soon the night will end—
Thou hast spent it weeping—
Joy shall morn attend. [Refrain]

5 Then in endless glory,
Pilgrim, thou shalt rest,
There Thy night of weeping
Is forever past. [Refrain]

6 There shall end thy journey,
Where no night can come,
Thou shalt rest forever,
In Thy long-sought home. [Refrain]
