Representative Text

1 After the clouds their flight have sped,
After our days and years have fled,
After our care and toil, what then?
Say, shall we wake to life again?

Refrain:
If, on the Rock, our faith abide,
If, in its cleft, our souls we hide,
Then, with the Lord, we all may be
Safe in a blest Eternity.

2 After our seed on earth is sown,
After the time to reap has flown,
After the sunset hour is past,
Say, shall we wake in Heav’n at last? [Refrain]

3 After these changeful scenes shall end,
After our parting, friend with friend,
After a night of pain is o’er, [Refrain]
Say, shall we meet to weep no more?

4 After the cross we here lay down,
Is there for us a robe and crown?
Borne on the wings of joy and love,
Say, shall we dwell in Christ, above? [Refrain]
