11381. After All, Eternity!

1 After the storm that sweeps the sea;
After the drifting to the lea;
After the rocks and sands are passed,
Cometh the joy of home at last.

Refrain:
After all that here we see,
What will there be, what will there be?
After all that here we see,
After all—Eternity!

2 After the winter long and drear,
After the snow clouds disappear,
After the winds sweet odors bring,
Cometh the everlasting spring. [Refrain]

3 After the long and toilsome day,
After the sun’s fierce, burning ray,
After the toiler homeward goes,
Cometh the night, and sweet repose. [Refrain]

4 After the course of life is run,
After its work has all been done,
After the hands are on the breast,
Cometh the long and peaceful rest. [Refrain]

5 After the march of time shall cease,
After earth-strife shall end in peace,
After the changeful disappears,
Cometh the long eternal years. [Refrain]
