Representative Text

1 We are marching to a city
On the hill of Zion fair;
With its beauty and its splendor,
There’s no other can compare,
Soon with all the ransomed army,
In their pure and bright array,
We shall gather in the morning,
Where the shadows flee away.

2 By the martyrs and apostles,
And the holy men of old,
With the story of redemption
Thro’ eternal years be told;
We shall hear and join the chorus
In that realm of endless day,
When we gather in the morning,
Where the shadows flee away.

3 There are voices we remember,
There are friends we dearly love;
We shall meet them at the portals
Of that city built above;
And our Saviour’s “Come, ye blessed,”
All out trials will repay,
When we gather in the morning,
Where the shadows flee away.
