1 Trials will be past, rest will come at last,
When the day of glory breaks;
Storms will cease to beat, life be ever sweet,
When the day of glory breaks.

Refrain:
When the day of glory breaks,
And the soul in Christ awakes,
Trials will be past, we’ll reach home at last,
When the day of glory breaks.

2 With the saints we’ll stand on the golden strand,
When the day of glory breaks;
We shall worship there with the angels fair,
When the day of glory breaks. [Refrain]

3 Dear ones gone before we shall greet once more,
When the day of glory breaks;
Happy we shall be for eternity,
When the day of glory breaks. [Refrain]
