I'll awaken in the morning

There are times when life seems dreary, And my pathway rough and steep

Representative Text

1 There are times when life seems dreary,
And my pathway rough and steep,
And my load seems almost more than I can bear;
But some night when over weary,
I will lay me down in sleep,
But I'll waken, yes, I'll waken In the morning.

Chorus:
In the morning, blessed morning,
I'll awaken, I'll awaken in the morning!
And some night when shadows creep,
I will lay me down in sleep,
But I'll waken, yes, I'll waken In the morning.

2 O the morning, blissful morning,
When my eyes from slumber cease,
I will gaze with joy and rapture on that scene;
There behold the shining angels
Gathered 'round the throne of peace,
When I waken, when I waken In the morning. [Chorus]

3 O the morning, happy morning,
When I wake within that land,
Where life's shadows and its sorrows never come;
There I'll meet my dear Redeemer,
He will take me by the hand,
When I waken, when I waken In the morning. [Chorus]

4 I'll awaken in the morning
Far away from ev'ry pain,
In the palaces beyond the jasper wall;
In the dwelling place of angels,
By my Saviour's precious side,
I'll awaken, yes, I'll waken In the morning. [Chorus]
