1. On the hilltops, on the mountains,
There are gleams of golden light,
For the promised morn is dawning,
And its star is growing bright.

Keep on watching, O ye faithful,
For the time is drawing nigh—
We shall see the King of glory
With His angels, by and by.

2. O the promised morn is dawning,
When the ransomed of the King
Shall return and come to Zion,
And His praise forever sing. [Refrain]

3. Hallelujah! what a moment,
When the dead in Christ shall rise,
And the trumpet of the ages
Sound in triumph from the skies! [Refrain]]

4. Keep on watching, be not weary,
For the Lord will surely come;
He has said, and we believe it,
He will take His people home. [Refrain]
