1 The last lovely morning,
All blooming and fair,
Is fast onward fleeting,
And soon will appear;

While the mighty, mighty, mighty trump
Sounds, "Come, come away!"
O, let us be ready
To hail that glad day!

2 And when that bright morning
In splendor shall dawn,
Our tears will be ended,
Our sorrows all gone. [Chorus]

3 The Bridegroom from glory
To earth shall descend,
Ten thousand bright angels
Around him attend. [Chorus]

4 The graves will be opened,
The saints will arise,
And with the Redeemer
Mount up to the skies. [Chorus]

5 The saints, then immortal,
In glory shall reign;
The Bride with the Bridegroom
Forever remain. [Chorus]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
