When The First Glimpse Of Heaven Breaks


When the first glimpse of heaven breaks upon our raptured sigh,
What a day of rejoicing that will be!
When we stand face to face with Jesus in that world of light,
What a great glad day that will be.

Chorus:
What a great glad day that will be,
What a great glad day that will be;
When we meet, never more to part, on that eternal shore,
What a great glad day that will be.

When we march thro’ the gates and hear the welcome of our King,
What a day of rejoicing that will be!
When with saints and the angels we unite His praise to sing,
What a great glad day that will be. [Chorus]

When we meet with the loved ones who have laid their armor down,
What a day of rejoicing that will be!
When the Lord shall bestow on us a bright immortal crown,
What a great glad day that will be. [Chorus]

There the storms never beat, and the surges never roll,-
What a day of rejoicing that will be!
There no death ever enters, there no sorrows reach the soul;
What a great glad day that will be. [Chorus]
