207 - It May Be at Morn

It may be at morn, when the day
is awaking,
When sunlight through darkness and shadow is breaking,
That Jesus will come in the fullness
of glory
To receive from the world His own.


O Lord Jesus, how long, how long

Ere we shout the glad song?

Christ returneth, Hallelujah!

Hallelujah! Amen, Hallelujah! Amen.

It may be at midday, it may be
at twilight,
It may be, perchance, that the blackness of midnight
Will burst into light in the blaze of
His glory,
When Jesus receives His own.
O joy! O delight! should we go
without dying,
No sickness, no sadness, no dread,
and no crying,
Caught up through the clouds with our Lord into glory,
When Jesus receives His own.
