When the night is o’er and the shadows past,
And eternal dawn dispels the gloom of earthly care;
In the home of God I shall rest at last,
In the land of Eden I shall dwell forever there.
I shall walk the streets of the city of God
With its tree of life so bright, so fair,
There will be no night—Jesus is the light,
I shall dwell forever there.
Tho’ my sky be filled with the clouds of time,
And my soul is burdened with forebodings of despair,
Yet, my heart is cheered, for the hope is mine,
If I trust in Jesus I shall dwell forever there.
How my heart will sing when I see the King,
For there is no sovereign that with Jesus can compare;
So the sacrifice of a life I’ll bring,
And with Him in glory, I shall dwell forever there.
