O Morning Land

Verse 1:
(Duet.)
Some day we say, and turn our eyes
Toward the fair hills of Paradise;
Some day, some time, a sweet new rest
Shall blossom, flower-like, in each breast;
(Solo. Alto.)
Some day, some time, our eyes shall see
The faces kept in memory;
(Solo. Soprano.)
Some day, some time, our eyes shall see
(Duet.)
The faces kept in memory;
Some day their hands shall clasp our hand,
Just over in the morning land,
Just over in the morning land;
Some day their hands shall clasp our hands,
Just over in the morning lands;
O morning land!
O morning land!

Verse 2:
(Duet.)
Some day our ears shall hear the song
Of triumph over sin and wrong;
Some day, some time, but oh! not yet;
but we will wait and not forget,
(Solo. Alto.)
That some day all these things shall be,
And rest be giv’n to you and me;
(Solo. Soprano.)
That some day all these things shall be,
(Duet.)
And rest be giv’n to you and me;
So wait, my friends, tho’ years move slow,
That happy time will come, we know,
That happy time will come, we know;
So wait, my friends, tho’ years move slow,
That happy time will come, we know
O morning land!
O morning land!
