white bird flying

All the darkness of the night has passed away
It is morning in my heart
I am living in the sunlight of the day,
It is morning in my heart

I can hear the songbirds singing their refrain
It is morning in my heart
And I know that life for me begins again
It is morning in my heart


It is morning, it is morning in my heart
Jesus made the gloomy shadows all depart
Songs of gladness now I sing for since Jesus is my King
It is morning, it is morning in my heart

By A. H. Ackley


Face to Face

Face to face with Christ my Savior,
Face to face–what will it be?
When with rapture I behold Him,
Jesus Christ who died for me.

Only faintly now I see Him,
With the darkened veil between,
But a blessed day is coming
When His glory shall be seen.

What rejoicing in His presence
When are banished grief and pain,
When the crooked ways are straightened
And the dark things shall be plain.

Face to face! O blissful moment!
Face to face–to see and know;
Face to face with my Redeemer,
Jesus Christ who loves me so.


Face to face I shall behold Him,
Far beyond the starry sky;
Face to face in all His glory,
I shall see Him by and by!

By Carrie E. Breck

Some Golden Daybreak

Some glorious morning sorrow will cease,
Some glorious morning all will be peace;
Heartaches all ended, labor all done,
Heaven will open Jesus will come.

Sad hearts will gladden, all shall be bright,
Goodbye forever to earth’s dark night;
Changed in a moment, like Him to be,
Oh, glorious daybreak, Jesus I’ll see,

Oh, what a meeting, there in the skies,
No tears nor crying shall dim our eyes;
Loved ones united eternally,
Oh, what a daybreak that morn will be.


Some golden daybreak Jesus will come;
Some golden daybreak, battles all won,
He’ll shout the victory, break through the blue,
Some golden daybreak, for me, for you.

By Carl A. Blackmore
