O the Night is Past

Representative Text

1 O the night is past and the morn doth shine
With its heav'nly beams in this heart of mine,
And the Sun of Peace in my soul doth beam,
And my life from darkness and sin redeem.

O the night is past,
Day has come at last,
And its bright beams shine in this heart of mine–
O the night is past!

2 O the night is past with its sin and shame,
With its wand'rings wild and its passion-flame,
And the smiling morning of righteousness
Bathes my weary soul in the beams of peace. [Refrain]

3 O the night is past, heavy night of woe,
Night of doubt and fear; I no longer go
With an aching heart and a soul distressed,
For the Lord is here, and the night is past. [Refrain]

4 There can be no night where His face doth shine,
Where His Spirit dwells, shedding love divine,
But the bright day shines as a sunlit sky,
And the soul is filled with felicity. [Refrain]
