Full Text

1 No night shall be in heaven; no gathering gloom
Shall o'er that glorious landscape ever come;
No tears shall fall in sadness o'er those flowers
That breathe their fragrance thro' celestial bowers.

Refrain:
No night, no night shall be in heaven;
No night, no night shall be in heaven.
No night, no night shall be in heaven;
No night, no night shall be in heaven.

2 No night shall be in heaven; no dreadful hour
Of mental darkness of the tempter's power;
Across those skies no envious clouds shall roll,
To dim the sunlight of the raptured soul. [Refrain]

3 No night shall be in heaven, but endless noon;
No fast declining sun, no waning moon;
But there the Lamb shall ever shed His light.
'Mid pastures green and waters ever bright. [Refrain]
