1. The gloomy night will soon be past,
The morning will appear;
The rays of blessèd light at last
Each waiting eye will cheer.
Thou bright and Morning Star, Thy light
Will to our joy be seen;
Thou, Lord, wilt meet our longing sight
Without a cloud between.
Ah, yes! Lord Jesus, Thou, whose heart
Still for Thy saints doth care;
We shall behold Thee as Thou art,
Thy perfect likeness bear.

2. Thy love sustains us on our way,
While pilgrims here below;
Thou dost, O Savior, day by day,
The suited grace bestow.
But O the more we learn of Thee,
And Thy rich mercy prove,
The more we long Thy face to see,
And fully know Thy love.
Then shine, Thou bright and Morning Star,
Dispel the dreary gloom;
Oh! take from sin and grief afar,
Thy blood-bought people home!
