1 After the shadows have passed away,
From my life forever,
When I have entered the land of day,
Just beyond the river;
Then with what joy my heart will thrill,
Eager His face to see;
Glory and peace my soul will fill,
Glory enough for me.

That will be glory enough for me,
Glory, glory,
Seeing the Savior who made me free,
Glory, glory;
Close by His precious side to stay
All through eternity,
That will be glory bright as day,
Glory enough for me.

2 Resting at last on that golden shore,
Free from sin and sadness,
Weakness of earth will be mine no more,
Serving Him with gladness;
If I may gain His blessed smile,
Rich my reward will be,
That will be glory all the while,
Glory enough for me. [Refrain]

3 With my beloved ones gone before,
What a glorious meeting;
Safe in His presence to part no more,
Heaven’s joy completing;
Even while here on earth I wait,
Strengthened my soul will be,
As I behold that glory great,
Glory enough for me. [Refrain]
