‘It may be at morn’ gospel hymn

Colin Adams at the Unashamed Workman has recently posted about a YouTube clip of the classic hymn ‘It may be at morn’. You can visit his blog to read his post, but I’ve embedded the YouTube video from Amsterdam Ghana SDA church choir below. It is worth watching to the end – and reading the lyrics at the same time…

‘It may be morn’ was written by HL Turner (1878) and composed by Jams McGranahan (1906) and is based on the following verses: Mark 13:35, Matt 13:26, Matt 24:27, 1 Thess 4:17, Rev 6:10

Here are the full lyrics:

It may be at morn, when the day is awaking,
When sunlight through darkness and shadow is breaking,
That Jesus will come in the fullness of glory
To receive from the world His own.

O Lord Jesus, how long, how long
Ere we shout the glad song?
Christ returneth, Hallelujah!
Hallelujah! Amen, Hallelujah! Amen.

It may be at midday, it may be at twilight,
It may be, perchance, that the blackness of midnight
Will burst into light in the blaze of His glory,
When Jesus receives His own.

O joy! O delight! should we go without dying,
No sickness, no sadness, no dread, and no crying,
Caught up through the clouds with our Lord into glory,
When Jesus receives His own.
