1 'Tis sweet to think, as night comes on,
Dark and drear,
E'er stars come twinkling one by one
Earth to cheer,
There is a world where comes no night,
It needs no sun or moon to light,
For Jesus' presence makes it bright.
No night there.

Chorus:
No night there,
No night there,
For Jesus' presence makes it bright;
No night there.

2 'Tis sweet to think, when round us lie
Grief and care,
That Jesus hears the softest sigh
Breathed in prayer;
And if we love him we shall see
That land from sin and sorrow free,
And O we know that there will be
No night there. [Chorus]

3 'Tis sweet to think that we shall be
Free from sin,
When thro' the shining portals we
Enter in,
Behold the Lamb upon the throne,
Be claimed by Jesus as his own,
In heav'n where sorrow is unknown.
No night there. [Chorus]
