When our earthly sun is setting,
And its glory fading fast;
When our life’s long looked for evening
With its shadows comes at last--
Chorus:
Oh! ’tis glorious, Oh! ’tis glorious,
To enter in the sweet refrain,
Oh! ’tis glorious, Oh! ’tis glorious,
To know we’ll meet again.
When the cold sweat of the dying
Hangs in drops upon our face;
And a secret voice assures us
We have almost run our race--
Chorus:

When the tear-drops fast are flowing,
And our hearts are torn with grief;
When for all our sorrows, vainly
We attempt to find relief--
Chorus:
When the friends we love are standing
Round our lonely, dying bed,
And we take our farewell parting
Ere the spark of life has fled--
Chorus:
