The Golden Morning – Hymn on Trumpet

Daniel S. Warner, Barney E. Warren
Eddie Lewis on Trumpet

The Bridegroom cometh!!!

Here’s a hymn about Christ’s second coming. I chose it because of it’s musical properties. I can see it’s going to be a slight challenge for me to play this one (I now write these blogs before I do the recordings). It is two pages long and the phrases are a little more involved than more standard hymns. I’m looking forward to recording it.

As I write about this hymn I am hearing the news of attacks in Iraq and the death of Iran’s top General. The first line of this hymn sounds like it could be written in our time. But no, it was written 130 years ago, before any of the world wars and during a time when they couldn’t have imagined the what life would be like today.

We have reached an awful era in the onward flight of years,
While the nations are in slumber, crying “peace” ’mid drowning fears;

We know that the time of Christ’s coming is near. We cannot know the exact time, but we know the season. ‘Tis the season.

Golden Morning Full Text

  1. We have reached an awful era in the onward flight of years,
    While the nations are in slumber, crying “peace” ’mid drowning fears;
    Lo, the shadows of creation lengthen to the eventide,
    The Lord is surely coming to receive His holy bride.
    • Refrain:
      We shall see the Savior coming,
      Coming in the glory of His Father’s throne;
      In that sweet and golden morning,
      He will come to crown His own.
  2. Every human structure ’round us crumbles from the mighty shock,
    While we stand upon the summit of the everlasting Rock;
    Mighty heralds, swiftly flying, sound the news from shore to shore,
    The Bridegroom is returning, and already at the door.
  3. Oh, our glorious King is coming from His country far away,
    For He has received a kingdom that shall stand eternally;
    And the saints, in all the greatness and the glory of His reign,
    Shall rise with songs of triumph and extol His holy name.

I’ve been getting most of my hymn information from a website called TimelessTruths.org. You can read more about The Golden Morning and other hymns by clicking HERE.
