Full Text

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.

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]
