To gather His loved ones home,
To gather His loved ones home;
There’ll be no dark valley when Jesus comes

There’ll be no more sorrow when Jesus comes;
But a glorious morrow when Jesus comes
To gather His loved ones home. [Refrain]

There’ll be no more weeping when Jesus comes;
But a blessed reaping when Jesus comes
To gather His loved ones home. [Refrain]

There’ll be songs of greeting when Jesus comes;
And a joyful meeting when Jesus comes
To gather His loved ones home. [Refrain]

There'll be no dark valley when Jesus comes. [Light at Eventide.] Cocerning this hymn, in Sacred Songs and Solos, 1903, Mr. Sankey says, in his My Life and Sacred Songs, 1906:—

Its proper ascription is "W. O. Cushing and I. D. Sankey."
