1 Soul of mine be not aweary
‘Mid the darkness of the night,
Soon will pass the misty shadows
And will come the morning light,
When the Saviour in his beauty
Shall descend from glory bright,
O it must be the breaking of that day,

Refrain:
O it must be the breaking of that day,
O it must be the breaking of that day,
When the Son of man shall come.
To receive us to his home,
O it must be the breaking of that day.

2 Day of joy and gladness waking,
When the Lord to earth shall come,
For the anxious hearts shall greet him
On that happy glorious morn;
Then shall end the night of weeping
On that great illustrious dawn,
For it must be the breaking of that day, [Refrain]

3 We shall soon know why the heartaches
With us here should e’er remain,
Why should flow those tears of sorrow,
Always tokens of our pain;
All that’s hidden shall be shown us
When the Saviour comes again;
Soon it must be the breaking of that day, [Refrain]
