Full Text

1 Here the heartache, there the gladness,
Here the tear, and there the smile,
Here the disappointments, sadness,
But in just a little while.

We shall be satisfied, fully satisfied,
With a joy full and complete,
Earth forgotten, glory entered,
Satisfied at Jesus’ feet.

2 Here the suff’ring, there the conquest,
Here the cross, and there the crown,
Here the weary, falt’ring footsteps,
There we lay the burden down. [Refrain]

3 Here the longing, there fulfillment,
Here the shadow, there the light,
Here the tempter, there our Saviour,
When we pass beyond the night. [Refrain]
