Text Based On Ecclesiastes Chapter 12 (KJV)
Or ever the silver cord be loosed,
or the golden bowl be broken,
or the pitcher be broken at the fountain,
or the wheel broken at the cistern.

GLEAMS OF THE GOLDEN MORNING
The golden morning is fast approaching;
Jesus soon will come
To take his faithful and happy children
To their promised home.
O, we see the gleams of the golden morning
Piercing through this night of gloom!
O, see the gleams of the golden morning
That will burst the tomb.
The gospel summons will soon be carried
To the nations round;
The Bridegroom then will cease to tarry
And the trumpet sound.
Attended by all the shining angels,
Down the flaming sky;
The Judge will come, and will take his people
Where they will not die.
The loved of earth who have long been parted,
Meet in that glad day;
The tears of those who are broken hearted
Shall be wiped away.
