Charles H. Gabriel (1856–1932)


When the Lord shall come in glo­ry
On the coronation day,
When its ev­er­last­ing light
On us is dawning,
All the clouds of time shall vanish,
And the shadows flee away,
When we waken in the
Resurrection morning.


In the morning, blessèd morning,
O the glo­ry of the
Resurrection morning!
We shall gather at His side,
In His likeness satisfied,
When we waken in the
Resurrection morning.

When the ties so sadly severed
Shall be reunited there,
Where shall enter nevermore
A pain or sorrow,
We shall know His joy excelleth
Every longing, every prayer,
When we waken on the blest,
Eternal morrow.


When the fight with sin is over,
And the victors robed in white
Meet in that blest home where harps
Are ever ringing,
They shall praise the mighty Sav­ior
Who has given life and light;
Unto Him who loved us,
All the ransomed singing.
