PLEASE NOTE - ONLY THE CHORUS IS IN OUR HYMNAL
          Be not aweary, for labor will cease
          Some glad morning;
          Turmoil will change into infinite peace,
          Some bright morning.

            Chorus
            Some bright morning, some glad morning,
            When the sun is shining in th'eternal sky;
            Some bright morning, some glad morning
            We shall see the Lord of Harvest, by and by.

          Wearisome burdens will all be laid down,
          Some glad morning;
          Then shall our cross be exchanged for a crown,
          Some bright morning.

            Chorus
            Some bright morning, some glad morning,
            When the sun is shining in th'eternal sky;
            Some bright morning, some glad morning
            We shall see the Lord of Harvest, by and by.

          Labor well done shall receive its reward,
          Some glad morning;
          Thou who art faithful shall be with the Lord,
          Some bright morning.

            Chorus
            Some bright morning, some glad morning,
            When the sun is shining in th'eternal sky;
            Some bright morning, some glad morning
            We shall see the Lord of Harvest, by and by.

          O what a time of rejoicing will come,
          Some glad morning;
          When all the ransomed are gathered at home,
          Some bright morning.

            Chorus
            Some bright morning, some glad morning,
            When the sun is shining in th'eternal sky;
            Some bright morning, some glad morning
            We shall see the Lord of Harvest, by and by.

          There with the loved ones who've gone on before,
          Some glad morning;
          We shall sing praise to the Lamb evermore,
          Some bright morning.

            Chorus
            Some bright morning, some glad morning,
            When the sun is shining in th'eternal sky;
            Some bright morning, some glad morning
            We shall see the Lord of Harvest, by and by.
