The King Shall Come When Morning Dawns ~ Hymn

The King Shall Come When Morning Dawns

The King shall come when morning dawns,
And light triumphant breaks;
When beauty gilds the eastern hills,
And life to joy awakes.

Not as of old a little child
To bear, and fight, and die,
But crowned with glory like the sun
That lights the morning sky.

O brighter than the rising morn
When He, victorious, rose,
And left the lonesome place of death,
Despite the rage of foes.

O brighter than that glorious morn
Shall this fair morning be,
When Christ, our King, in beauty comes,
And we His face shall see.

The King shall come when morning dawns,
And earth’s dark night is past;
O haste the rising of that morn,
The day that aye shall last.

And let the endless bliss begin,
By weary saints foretold,
When right shall triumph over wrong,
And truth shall be extolled.

The King shall come when morning dawns,
And light and beauty brings:
Hail, Christ the Lord! Thy people pray,
Come quickly, King of kings.

Words: Unknown au­thor; trans­lat­ed from Greek to Eng­lish by John Brown­lie in Hymns of the Russ­ian Church, 1907.

  1. I hope that day comes sooner than later.
    Good morning Ellen B.,
    I was reading this lovely Hymn when my little mouse scrolled down to the beautiful Victorian. Sweet hubby and I really do need to make a day trip to your lovely town to see the sights. There seems to be so much history there.
    On another note, I’m tossing out some dates. I have available on Fridays the following: November 7&21. Saturdays in November I have available: 15 & 22. December I have available Fri. 12 or Saturday the 13th. So far I’m completely open for the month of January and February. Let me know if anything in there works for you.
    🙂 Cori G.

  2. beautiful words, and you captured an awesome sunrise!
    When right shall triumph over wrong,and truth shall be extolled!
    Come quickly Lord Jesus.
