Representative Text

1. After the life-paths we’re treading
End upon time’s solemn shore,
There will be light at the river
While the redeemed ones pass o’er.

Refrain:
There will be light at the river,
There will be light at the river,
There will be light at the river,
While the redeemed ones pass o’er.

2. There will be light for the spirits
Who thro’ deep shadows have come—
Fadeless light shining glad welcome
Out from the windows of home. [Refrain]

3. There will be light for the weary
Who thro’ sore trials have passed—
Radiant light as they enter,
Peace that for ever shall last. [Refrain]

4. There will be light for the faithful,
Whate’er the way they have trod—
Glorious light sent to guide them
Safe to the city of God. [Refrain]
