When The Long Long Night Is Over


When the long, long night is over,
And we waken from our sleep;
When the shadows dark shall hover,
And no watcher vigils keep.

Chorus:
Oh, the rapture of the morning!
When the long, long night is o’er;
Oh, the garlands for adorning,
When we waken evermore!

Shall we wake to blessed morning
In the world beyond the skies,
And wear garlands for adorning
In that home where man ne’er dies? [Chorus]

Sweet will be the life up yonder,
Rare will be the music heard;
Nevermore from him to wander,
Who has kept his gracious word. [Chorus]
