Representative Text

1 After the sunshine and after the rain,
After the shadows and after the pain,
When on this earth I no longer shall sing,
I shall see Jesus my heavenly King.

I shall behold him, yes, bless His dear name,
I shall see Jesus who raised me from shame;
I shall be with Him forever above,
Safe in the light of His beautiful love.

2 After the warfare and after the sighs,
After the teardrops have gone from mine eyes,
Close to my Saviour and Friend I shall be,
Loving Him, praising Him there by the sea. [Chorus]

3 After the marching and after the woe,
When by His grace I have conquered the foe;
I shall be with Him forever above,
Singing with angels the song of His love. [Chorus]
