        Cheer, O cheer, ye sons of Zion!
        Weary days will soon be past;
        Joy’s bright banner waving o’er us
        Tells that Heav’n is won at last.
        On that fair, celestial morning,
        Comes no cloud of grief or pain;
        In your peaceful tents abiding,
        Sorrow ne’er shall come again.

        Cheer, O cheer, ye sons of Zion!
        Weary days will soon be past;
        Joy’s bright banner waving o’er us
        Tells that Heav’n is won at last.



        Cheer, O cheer,
        the morn is breaking!
        Gloomy night will disappear;
        Christ will come with sweet awaking;
        Happier days will soon be here;
        Long the pilgrim path
        we’ve wandered,
        Long we’ve hoped
        ’mid doubt and fear,
        Hard we’ve pressed
        thro’ many a battle—
        Now the day of peace is here.

        Cheer, O cheer, ye sons of Zion!
        Weary days will soon be past;
        Joy’s bright banner waving o’er us
        Tells that Heav’n is won at last.



        Cheer, O cheer,
        the morn is breaking!
        Bright its beams of promise rise;
        Sing, O sing, ye heirs of Zion!
        Hear the welcome from the skies:
        “Come, ye blessèd of My Father,”
        Faint no more ’mid doubts and fears;
        Heaven’s bright portal
        opes before you;
        Wait for you immortal years.

        Cheer, O cheer, ye sons of Zion!
        Weary days will soon be past;
        Joy’s bright banner waving o’er us
        Tells that Heav’n is won at last.
