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.

Refrain:
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]
