There'll be no night there

Representative Text

1 There’ll be no night there, where God’s children meet
With the sav’d and blest, O the thought is sweet!
There’ll be no night there, neither grief nor tears
In the mansions fair thro’ the endless years.

There’ll be no night there, in that city fair,
For the Lamb is the light; there’ll be no night there;
There’ll be no night there, there’ll be no night there,
Over in that home-land, no night there.

2 There’ll be no night there, neither death nor pain
E’er can enter in with their sombre train;
Past the city gates no more losses come,
Not a sigh, not care reach our heav’nly home. [Refrain]

3 There’ll be no night there, in that land of rest,
Only light and love, endless joys so blest;
No more parting hours in that city fair,
But eternal life; there’ll be no night there. [Refrain]
