Representative Text

1 We'll all gather home in the morning,
At the sound of the great jubilee;
We'll all gather home in the morning,
What a gathering that will be!

Chorus:
What a gathering,
gathering,
gathering that will be!
What a gathering,
gathering,
What a gathering that will be!

2 We'll all gather home in the morning,
Our blessed Redeemer to see;
We'll meet with the true and the faithful,
What a gathering that will be! [Chorus]

3 We'll all gather home in the morning,
On the banks of the bright jasper sea,
We'll meet all the pure and redeemed ones;
What a gathering that will be! [Chorus]

4 O hasten, thou bright, coming morning,
We're waiting and longing for thee;
Thy glorious light, earth adorning--
What a morning that will be! [Chorus]
