Representative Text

1 When the shadows have turned into night time,
And the night time has all passed away;
When the Saviour shall call I will answer,
At the dawn of that wonderful day.

Refrain:
When the shadows have all pass’d away,
I shall wake at the break of the day,
In that land of delight,
In that homeland so bright,
When the shadows have all passed away.

2 When the morning shall break into glory,
And my lov’d ones shall come back to me,
Thor’ the ages I’ll tell the glad story,
Where the shadows shall nevermore be. [Refrain]

3 Where the song of the angels is ringing,
As they sing of that unmeasured love,
I expect to take part in that singing,
In that shadowless homeland above. [Refrain]
