Lyrics

Verse 1
As the shadows of night are falling,
I am thinking of that day by and by;
When the trumpet of the Lord shall be calling,
As the day breaks o’er the hills.

Chorus
I’ll go singing, I’ll go shouting on my journey home,
Till the day breaks, till the day breaks,
There’ll be singing, there’ll be shouting, when we all get home,
When the day breaks o’er the hills.

Verse 2
When we gather home at last there’ll be singing,
Such as angels round the throne never heard;
For the song of souls redeemed shall go ringing,
As the day breaks o’er the hills.

Verse 3
I shall rise to be with Jesus forever,
I shall meet the ones who passed on before;
We shall meet to part no more, never, never,
When the day breaks o’er the hills.
