Good Night and Good Morning Lyrics

When comes to the weary a blessèd release,
When upward we pass to His kingdom of peace,
When free from the woes that on earth we must bear,
We'll say "good night" here, but "good morning" up there.

Refrain

Good morning up there where Christ is the Light,
Good morning up there where cometh no night;
When we step from this earth to God's Heaven so fair,
We'll say "good night" here but "good morning" up there.

When fadeth the day and dark shadows draw nigh,
With Christ close at hand, it is not death to die;
He'll wipe every tear, roll away every care;
We'll say "good night" here, but "good morning" up there.

Refrain

When home lights we see shining brightly above,
Where we shall be soon, through His wonderful love,
We'll praise Him Who called us His Heaven to share,
We'll say "good night" here, but "good morning" up there.

Refrain
