Representative Text

1 I know not when the light shall break
In golden ray o’er jasper sea,
But thro‘ the storms a message clear
Rings sweet to me, rings sweet to me.

Refrain:
I do not know when I shall see
The precious Friend who died for me;
But this I know, on streets of gold
I shall some day his face behold.

2 I do not know what years remain,
What pain or grief are still to be;
I only know a heav’nly song
Rings sweet to me, rings sweet to me. [Refrain]

3 I know not what relentless foes
Shall press me back unceasingly;
In spite of all the victor’s song
Rings sweet to me, rings sweet to me. [Refrain]

4 Some day departed ones shall stand
With eager smiles in welcome free,
Their song of welcome even now
Rings sweet to me, rings sweet to me. [Refrain]
