The Dawn Is Near


First-place Hymn
1. Poor fainting spirit still hold on thy way.
The dawn is near.
The dawn is near.
True, thou art weary but yon bright’ning ray
becomes more clear,
becomes more clear.
Bear up a little longer; wait for rest
and a bright new world of joy and peace attained.
2. The night of life is mournful but look on.
The dawn is near.
The dawn is near.
Soon will earth’s shadowed scenes and forms be gone. Be of good cheer.
Be of good cheer.
Gird up thy loins; bind sandals on thy feet.
The way is dark and long; the end, the end is sweet.
