Representative Text

1 O the morning, happy morning,
That will break on yonder shore,
When the march of life is ended,
And our harvest work is o’er;
When we stand amid the gloaming,
And our hearts with joy are bright,
While we say to those around us,
With a loving smile, Good night.

Good night, good night,
Will we meet in the morning light.
Good night till we meet at the Saviour’s feet,
In that land where all is bright.

2 O the morning, blissful morning,
That from ev’ry care is free,
And forever with our Saviour
And Redeemer we shall be;
When the silver chord is broken,
And our spirits wing their flight,
Only pausing till our dear ones
Catch the loving words, Good night. [Refrain]

3 O the morning, golden morning,
We shall see it by and by,
Faith beholds it in the distance,
And its dawning draweth nigh.
Here we part, for time is fleeting,
Ever fading from our sight,
But in yonder happy morrow
We shall never say, Good night. [Refrain]
