Lyrics from Relief Society Song Book, 1919, no. 62

  • Hymn title: The Morning Light
1. The morning light is breaking,
The darkness disappears;
The sons of earth are waking
To penitential tears.
Each breeze that sweeps the ocean
Brings tidings from afar,
Of nations in commotion,
Prepared for Zion’s war.

2. See heathen nations bending
Before the God of love,
And thousand hearts ascending
In gratitude above;
While sinners, now repenting,
The gospel’s call obey,
And seek a Savior’s blessing,
A nation in a day.

3. Blest river of salvation,
Pursue thy onward way;
Flow thou to ev’ry nation,
Nor in thy richness stay.
Stay not till all the lowly,
Triumphant reach their home;
Stay not till all the holy
Proclaim, “The Lord is come.”
