Hymn of the Week – In the Morning of Joy

Words: Mrs. R.A. Evilsizer (1895)
Music: Anthony J. Showalter (1895)
Sheet music

When the trumpet shall sound,
And the dead shall arise,
And the splendors immortal
Shall envelope the skies,
When the angel of death
Shall no longer destroy,
And the the dead shall awaken
In the morning of joy;

In the morning of joy,
In the morning of joy,
We’ll be gathered to glory
In the morning of joy;
In the morning of joy,
In the morning of joy,
We’ll be gathered to glory
In the morning of joy.

When the King shall appear,
In His beauty on high,
And shall summon His children
To the courts of the sky,
Shall the cause of the Lord
Have been all your employ,
That your soul may be spotless
In the morning of joy?

Oh, the bliss of that morn
When our loved ones we meet,
With the songs of the ransomed
We each other shall greet,
Singing praise to the Lamb,
Through eternity’s years,
With the past all forgotten
With its sorrows and tears.
