1 The gloomy night will soon be past,
The morning will appear,
The rays of blessed light at last

No cloud between.

3 Thy love sustains us on our way
While pilgrims here below;
Thou dost, O Saviour, day by day,
Thy grace bestow.

4 But oh! the more we learn of thee
And thy rich mercy prove,
The more we long thy face to see,
And know thy love.

5 Then shine, thou bright and morning Star,
Dispel the dreary gloom;
Oh, take from sin and grief afar
Thy people home.
