1 Is thy trembling heart aweary?
Are thy footsteps almost gone?
Does life seem a weary burden?
Courage, brother, struggle on!
Bear it cheerfully and bravely,
Do not stop to weep or sigh;
After night the morning dawneth,
Light will greet thee by and by.

By and by the morning dawneth,
By and by, by and by.
Tho’ thou see’st no sign of dawning,
Light will greet thee by and by.

2 Is thy spirit sad within thee?
Raise thy heart in earnest prayer;
Trust a Father’s loving kindness,
Trust a Father’s tender care.
Call upon Him in thy sorrow,
He will hear thy faltering cry;
Tho’ thou seest no sign of dawning,
Light shall greet thee by and by. [Refrain]

3 Has thy spirit grown aweary?
Do not falter in the strife!
God has work for thee, my brother,
As thou tread’st the path of life.
Darkness may obscure thy pathway,
Clouds may gather in the sky;
Storms may rage, but do not murmur,
Light shall greet thee by and by. [Refrain]
