Representative Text

1 A shadow will follow us ever,
And oft it will darken our way,
It comes with the sunshine of morning,
And lingers till close of the day;
Though falling along by the pathway,
Apace with our own eager feet;
Beneath the meridian splendor,
The shadow is under our feet.

Refrain:
With hearts overflowing with rapture,
We joy in a vict’ry complete;
Beneath the meridian splendor,
The shadow is under our feet.

2 A shadow will follow us ever,
The shadow of self and of sin;
Despairing, we cry to the Saviour,
O wash us and cleanse us within;
We fly to His dear, loving presence,
Reflecting His radiance sweet;
Beneath the meridian splendor,
The shadow is under our feet. [Refrain]

3 The shadow that follows us ever,
Will flee, if in Christ we abide;
His glory will brighten forever,
The cleft of the Rock where we hide;
The light of the cross shining o’er us
Illumines our blessed retreat;
Beneath the meridian splendor,
The shadow is under our feet. [Refrain]
