881. GOLDEN DAWNING

Christ in Song,

1.
I am waiting for the morning
Of the day that brings release,
Waiting for the golden dawning
Of God's everlasting peace.

Chorus:
Hasten on, day eternal!
Bid the night of sorrow cease;
Usher in love supernal,
Bring the golden golden dawn of peace.

2.
O'er the hilltops brightly breaking,
Sun of Righteousness arise,
Ev'ry soul from slumber waking
As God's glory gilds the skies.  [Chorus]

3.
Endless joy for hours of crying,
Everlasting peace for care;
Immortality for dying,
Hallelujahs glad, for prayer!  [Chorus]
