1 There’s a thought that comes when, my day’s work done,
I sit in the twilight gray,
‘Tis a thought that tells of a reaping time
On the hills of the far away.

Refrain:
There my soul shall rise on her snow white wings
And fly, when her toil is o’er,
Where the skies are bright with the morning light
Of a day that shall fade no more.

2 There’s a thought that comes when the sparkling dew
On the sleeping flower I see,
For it tells of rest in my Father’s home,
That his love has prepared for me. [Refrain]

3 There’s a thought that comes when the earth is still,
And the night with its train draws nigh:
And it tells of a crown that the just shall wear
In a beautiful world on high. [Refrain]

4 I will watch and wait till my Saviour comes,
For I know ‘twill not be long
Till I pass with him through the gates of life,
And be welcomed with joyful song. [Refrain]
