Representative Text

1 After the blackness of midnight,
Cometh the dawning of day;
After the cloud and the tempest,
Sunshine drives darkness away.

Joy is the fruit of the morning,
Gloom is the offspring of night;
Faith is the noblest adorning,
Patiently waiting for light.

2 After the sadness of doubting,
Doubting and walking by sight,
Cometh the sweetness of trusting,
Trusting that all will be right. [Chorus]

3 After the heart has been troubled,
Torn by some deep hidden grief;
Cometh the calm and the sunshine
Bringing a welcome relief. [Chorus]
