Full Text

1 Here the battle and the conflict,
Many wounds and scars;
There the rest that never faileth,
Peace that nothing mars.

Here and there, here and there—
Good of both the faithful share;
Here the battle and the conflict,
All the glory there.

2 Here the loving and the losing,
And the blinding tears;
There the gain that is eternal,
Free from grief and fears. [Refrain]

3 Here the bitter pains and crosses,
And the anguish sore;
There the comfort and the healing,
Health forevermore. [Refrain]

Mary Jane Matthews, married C. M. Smith; married A. S. Barnes, 1883; married Charles Kendall Adams, 1890. She has written verses in the leisure of her happy life. First her hymns sang themselves from her heart and then her poems caroled their way from her soul. Few of her classmates in Packer Institute, where she was for the most part educated, knew that the popular Mary Mathews was not American born and a Brooklyn girl. Her birthplace was Ireland and her ancestry Irish. She is the author of thirty or more known hymns, many of them incorporated in song books of a score of more songs and ballads, several of which have been set to music, and are familiar favorites, and of many lyrics and sonnets.
