Hymn/Song Information

The gloomy night will soon be past




The gloomy night will soon be past,
The morning will appear;
The day of glorious light at last
Each waiting one will cheer.


Thou Bright and Morning Star,
Thy light
Will to our joy be seen;
Thou, Lord, wilt meet
our longing sight
Without a cloud between.


Ah, yes, Lord Jesus,
Thou whose heart
Still for Thy saints doth care,
We shall behold Thee as Thou art,
And Thy full image bear.


Thy love sustains us on our way
While pilgrims here below;
Thou dost, O Saviour, day by day
Thy suited grace bestow.


But, oh, the more we learn of Thee,
And Thy rich mercy prove,
The more we long Thy face to see,
And fully know Thy love.


Then shine, Thou bright
and morning star,
Dispel the dreary gloom;
O take from sin and grief afar
Thy blood-bought people home.


---Alternative verses---


The gloomy night will soon be past,
The morning will appear,
The harbinger of day at last
Each waiting eye will cheer.


Thy love sustains us by the way,
While pilgrims here below;
Thou dost, O Saviour, day by day,
Thy suited grace bestow.


But oh! the more we learn of Thee,
And Thy rich mercy prove,
The more we long Thy face to see,
And fully prove Thy love.


Then, shine, Thou Bright
and Morning Star,
We wait for Thee to come
And take, from sin and grief afar,
Thy blood-bought people home.
