Representative Text

1 Tho' the soul grow faint and weary
‘Mid the sadness of the night,
Soon upon the darkness dreary
There will glow a blessed light;
And the gladness of that dawning
Will all tears of grief repay,
Joy is coming in the morning,
When the shadows flee away.

Refrain:
Joy is coming when the morning
Shall in splendor ‘round thee shine;
Joy is coming in the morning,
Soul, have faith, no more repine.

2 Thro' the hours of bitter weeping,
When thou seemest all alone,
God a tender watch is keeping,
Every sigh to him is known;
After all the anxious waking,
After all the fitful dreams,
Joy is coming with the breaking
Of the morning’s golden beams. [Refrain]

3 Thro the time of pain and sorrow
Trust the love and care divine,
Wait the radiant tomorrow,
Soon its blessing shall be thine;
God’s unceasing guard is o’er thee,
And the gloom will soon be gone,
Joy is coming with the glory
Of a holy, cloudless dawn. [Refrain]
