The Happy Day at Last Has Come

The happy day has rolled on

Author: Philo Dibble
Tune: ANIMATION (Beesley)
Published in 21 hymnals

Representative Text

1. The happy day at last has come.
The truth restored is now made known.
The promised angel’s come again
To introduce Messiah’s reign.

2. The gospel trump again is heard.
The truth from darkness has appeared.
The lands which long benighted lay
Have now beheld a glorious day:

3. The day by prophets long foretold,
The day which Abram did behold,
The day that Saints desired so long,
When God his great work would perform,

4. The day when Saints again shall hear
The voice of Jesus in their ear,
And angels, who above do reign,
Come down to speak again with men.
