A Past and Future Hymn Text

Here’s the text of a hymn that will be on the new Indelible Grace album, Joy Beyond the Sorrow, which will be released this fall. Looking forward to hearing the music!

“Until The Day Break.” by Horatius Bonar

For the vision of the Bridegroom Waits the well-beloved Bride,
Severed only for a season From her Well-beloved’s side.
For the hour when morn ascendeth, And the shadows disappear,
For the signs of heavenly glory, She is waiting, waiting here!

Morn of morns, it comes at last, All the gloom of ages past.
For the day of days the brightest She is waiting, waiting here!

For the coming of the Bridegroom, Whom, though yet unseen, we love;
For the King of saints, returning In His glory from above;
For the shout that shakes the prison, For the trumpet loud and clear,
For the voice of the archangel, She is waiting, waiting here!

Morn of morns, it comes at last, All the gloom of ages past.
For the day of days the brightest She is waiting, waiting here!

For the light beyond the darkness, When the reign of sin is done,
When the storm has ceased its raging, And the haven has been won;
For the joy beyond the sorrow, Joy of the eternal year,
For the resurrection splendor, She is waiting, waiting here!

Morn of morns, it comes at last, All the gloom of ages past.
For the day of days the brightest She is waiting, waiting here!

    • Dear Joyce: I’m afraid I can’t find the origin of this picture. It is in fairly common use on the internet, but it may be copyrighted in some way that my normal searches can’t find (i.e. by an artist without a website). I often choose to use such images with the understanding that if a copyright turns up I will immediately take them down. But you’ll have to make your own decision. Thanks for the question. Bob
