Description: This is apparently the first arrangement of this tune, based on a camp meeting folk hymn from the last eighteenth or early nineteenth century. Other arrangements from the same source are by John G. McCurry (Burges, from The Social Harp, 1855) and Henry S. Reese (Sweet Morning, from The Sacred Harp, p. 421, 1860 to the present). Sweet Morning in The Sacred Harp is based on an English folk tune (Jackson 1953, No. 168); Burges in The Social Harp is said to be based on an African-American spiritual (Jackson 1933, pp. 259-260). The words by one or more anonymous authors; verses first appear in 1790. There are twelve stanzas in the Southern and Western Pocket Harmonist.

1. Jesus, my all, to heaven is gone,
And we'll all shout together in that morning;
He whom I fix my hopes upon,
And we'll all shout together in that morning.

Chorus
In that morning, in that morning,
And we'll all shout together in that morning.

2. His track I see, and I'll pursue,
And we'll all shout together in that morning;
The narrow way, till him I view,
And we'll all shout together in that morning.

3. The way the holy prophets went.
And we'll all shout together in that morning;
The road that leads from banishment,
And we'll all shout together in that morning.

4. The King's highway of holiness,
And we'll all shout together in that morning;
I'll go, for all his paths are peace.
And we'll all shout together in that morning.

 

5. This is the way I long have sought,
And we'll all shout together in that morning;
And mourned because I found it not;
And we'll all shout together in that morning.

6. My grief a burden long has been.
And we'll all shout together in that morning;
Because I was not saved from sin,
And we'll all shout together in that morning.

7. The more I strove against its power,
And we'll all shout together in that morning;
I felt its weight and guilt the more,
And we'll all shout together in that morning.

8. Till late I heard my Savior say,
And we'll all shout together in that morning;
Come hither, soul, I am the way.
And we'll all shout together in that morning.

 

9. Lo! glad I come, and thou, blest Lamb,
And we'll all shout together in that morning;
Shall take me to thee, whose I am;
And we'll all shout together in that morning.

10. Nothing but sin have I to give,
And we'll all shout together in that morning;
Nothing but love shall I receive,
And we'll all shout together in that morning.

11. Then will I tell to sinners round.
And we'll all shout together in that morning;
What a dear Savior I have found;
And we'll all shout together in that morning.

12. I'll point to thy redeeming love.
And we'll all shout together in that morning;
And say, behold the way to God!
And we'll all shout together in that morning.
