1 The King shall come when morning dawns and light triumphant breaks; when beauty gilds the eastern hills and life to joy awakes.
2 Not, as of old, a little child, to bear, and fight, and die, but crowned with glory like the sun that lights the morning sky.
3 The King shall come when morning dawns and earth's dark night is past; O haste the rising of that morn, the day that e'er shall last;
4 and let the endless bliss begin, by weary saints foretold, when right shall triumph over wrong, and truth shall be extolled.
5 The King shall come when morning dawns and light and beauty brings: Hail, Christ the Lord! Thy people pray, come quickly, King of kings.
