Representative Text

1 There’s light a little farther on,
The glorious light of coming dawn;
And all earth shadows will be gone,
At morning time, at morning time.

Refrain:
At morning time there’s fadeless light;
At morning time all will be right;
Oh, in some far-off radiant clime,
There will be joy at morning time.

2 At morning time no heart shall know
The griefs that fretted here below,
For God will every good bestow,
At morning time, at morning time. [Refrain]

3 Then all the “dark things shall be plain,”
“The crooked way made straight” again;
All will be joy and brightness then,
At morning time, at morning time. [Refrain]

4 The stifled hopes shall come to flower;
The desert places know the show’r,
And broken hearts find peace and pow’r,
At morning time, at morning time. [Refrain]
