1. When comes to the weary a blessèd release,
When upward we pass to His kingdom of peace,
When free from the woes that on earth we must bear,
We’ll say good night here, but good morning up there.

Refrain
Good morning up there where Christ is the Light,
Good morning up there where cometh no night;
When we step from this earth to God’s Heaven so fair,
We’ll say good night here but good morning up there.

2. When fadeth the day and dark shadows draw nigh,
With Christ close at hand, it is not death to die;
He’ll wipe every tear, roll away every care;
We’ll say good night here, but good morning up there. [Refrain]

3. When home lights we see shining brightly above,
Where we shall be soon, through His wonderful love,
We’ll praise Him who called us His Heaven to share,
We’ll say good night here, but good morning up there. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
