How bright is the day when the Christian
Receives the sweet message to come,
To rise to the mansions of glory,
And be there forever at home.

The angels stand ready and waiting,
The moment the spirit is gone,
To carry it upward to heaven,
And welcome it safely home.

The saints that have gone up before us,
All raise a new shout as we come,
And sing hallelujah the louder
To welcome the travelers home.
