Full Text

1 When the glad morning shall banish the night,
When all the shadows have vanished from sight,
And I arise in His heavenly light,
I shall have glory divine.

I shall have glory divine,
I shall have glory divine,
When I awake where no storms ever break,
I shall have glory divine.

2 When I have fought the good fight and have won,
Victory gained thro’ the Father’s dear Son,
When I my last hour of duty have done,
I shall have glory divine. [Refrain]

3 When by His grace ev’ry pitfall is passed,
And all my shackles aside I have cast,
When I behold Him in Heaven at last,
I shall have glory divine. [Refrain]
