The Morning Breaks

Hymns (1985, 2002), no. 1

1. The morning breaks, the shadows flee; Lo, Zion’s standard is unfurled! The dawning of a brighter day, The dawning of a brighter day Majestic rises on the world.

2. The clouds of error disappear Before the rays of truth divine; The glory bursting from afar, The glory bursting from afar Wide o’er the nations soon will shine.

3. The Gentile fulness now comes in, And Israel’s blessings are at hand. Lo, Judah’s remnant, cleansed from sin, Lo, Judah’s remnant, cleansed from sin, Shall in their promised Canaan stand.

4. Jehovah speaks! Let earth give ear, And Gentile nations turn and live. His mighty arm is making bare, His mighty arm is making bare His cov’nant people to receive.

5. —Angels from heav’n and truth from earth Have met, and both have record borne; Thus Zion’s light is bursting forth, Thus Zion’s light is bursting forth To bring her ransomed children home.
