Representative Text

1 Christian, so weary and faint on the road,
Seeking thy blessed Redeemer’s abode,
Darkness around thee and heavy thy load,
Afterward, afterward, list to the word.

Refrain:
“Afterward, afterward,” blessed refrain!
After the darkness, and sorrow and pain,
Blessing, and glory, and honor and gain,
“Afterward,” blessed refrain!

2 Courage, then, Christian, and still pressing on,
Keep to the pathway though daylight be gone;
Soon o’er the mountain shall burst the glad sun,
Afterward, afterward, cometh the dawn. [Refrain]

3 What though the tempest awhile may alarm,
Wild winds assail thee and threaten to harm?
Kept by thy Saviour’s omnipotent arm,
Afterward, afterward, cometh the calm. [Refrain]

4 What though the pestilence draw to thee nigh?
What though the arrows to kill thee may fly?
Sheltered in Jesus, they all shall pass by,
Afterward, afterward, glory on high. [Refrain]
