Representative Text

1 When this life here is ended and the dark clouds break,
When to heaven’s bright morning happy souls shall wake,
Not a few hours we’ll linger joy supreme to share,
With the friends gone before us, we’ll be all day there.

Refrain:
We’ll be all day there, we’ll be all day there,
Where no night ever cometh to the land so fair;
We’ll be all day there, we’ll be all day there,
With the Saviour who redeemed us, we’ll be all day there.

2 No more watching and waiting, no more race to run,
Where the King in His beauty is the fadeless sun,
In the home of the blessed time can not impair,
Thro’ His love everlasting, we’ll be all day there. [Refrain]

3 In the light of His presence night can never be,
There is glory eternal when His face we see,
Here the years swiftly fleeting dreary shadows bear,
Where there’s light everlasting, we’ll be all day there. [Refrain]
