Representative Text

1 We watch for the morning, the beautiful day
That shines in the Land of Delight;
The shadows will flee from its radiance away;
O listen! there cometh no night.
(there cometh no night.)

Chorus:
There cometh no night, (no night,)
Where Jesus is dwelling
There cometh no night. (no night, no night.)

2 The roses bloom on in that wonderful land,
Untouched by the fingers of blight;
And earth's dreary sorrows we'll there understand,
Rejoicing - there cometh no night.
(there cometh no night.) [Chorus]

3 The King in His beauty we there shall behold;
The Lamb is its glory and light;
We'll join the grand chorus of rapture untold,
Forever - there cometh no night.
(there cometh no night.) [Chorus]
