Representative Text

1 No farewell shall be uttered
upon that Golden Shore,
Where friends a while asundered,
shall me to part no more;
Before the blessed Dayspring,
the shadows take their flight:
We'll say a glad good-morning,
but nevermore good-night.

Refrain:
Nevermore good-night,
Nevermore good-night;
O pure and radiant morning!
‘Twill burst upon our sight;
Nevermore good-night,
Nevermore good-night;
We'll say a glad good-morning,
But, nevermore good-night.

2 Tho' earthly ties are broken,
they'll be united there:
The flow'rs of God's transplanting
shall bloom in beauty rare;
Where his eternal gardens
are shining fair and bright,
We'll say a glad good-morning,
but nevermore good-night. [Refrain]

3 O morning full of glory,
whose sun shall ne'er go down!
We'll lay aside our crosses,
and take the starry crown;
In that celestial country
the Lamb shall be the light:
We'll say a glad good-morning,
but nevermore good-night. [Refrain]
