Representative Text

1 Although our lives be filled with bliss,
With floods of joy and happiness,
There’ll be a brighter world than this,
After all, after all. After all, after all,
There’ll be a brighter world than this,
After all, after all.

2 Our earthly joys shall pass away,
Just like the fleeting of a day,
But we with Christ shall live for aye,
After all, after all. After all, after all,
But we with Christ shall live for aye,
After all, after all.

3 Tho’ oft in sorrow we be cast,
Trust Christ our Lord, it cannot last,
For in yon clime ’twill all be past,
After all, after all. After all, after all,
For in yon clime ’twill all be past,
After all, after all.

4 The darkest night shall turn to day,
And sorrow’s clouds shall pass away;
With Christ we’ll live an endless day,
After all, after all. After all, after all,
With Christ we’ll live an endless day,
After all, after all.
