1 Brother, is thy pathway clouded?
Does thy sun refuse to shine?
Is thy sky in darkness shrouded?
Dost thou in thy sorrow pine?

Chorus:
Look up, weary, fainting brother,
See! the dawning doth appear;
From the east the light is breaking,
Night recedes, the day is near.

2 Hast thou failed to do thy duty?
Didst thou into error stray?
There are blessings without number,
Christ is off’ring thee today. [Chorus]

3 Look, my brother, Christ is ready,
Cast on Him your every care;
Now He waits to bear your burdens,
And will all your sorrows share. [Chorus]

4 See! a golden crown is waiting—
Waiting for thee over there,
Studded with the gems of heaven,
If for Christ the cross you bear. [Chorus]
