When the toiling time is ended

Representative Text

1 When the toiling time is over here below,
And we rise to that sweet home with light aglow—
And amid the bright immortals, loved ones see,
What a shout, O what rejoicing there will be.

Refrain:
When the toiling time is over, and we rise
Where the many shining mansions greet our eyes,
And our blessed Lord and loved ones we shall see,
What a shout, O what rejoicing there will be.

2 When we step beyond the portals, passing fair,
And behold the many mansions waiting there—
Homes of beauty that shall stand eternally
What a shout, O what rejoicing there will be. [Refrain]

3 When we stand with our Redeemer, robed in white,
From His hand our crowns receiving, crowns of light,
Which He purchased on the cross of Calvary
What a shout, O what rejoicing there will be. [Refrain]
