1 Lo, this world is full of sorrow,
Here we find no lasting joy,
Gloomy storms of doubt come o’er us,
And temptations e’er annoy.
Hear the promise, blessed promise!
May it keep us from the fall!
“He that to the end endureth,
Shall be saved” once for all.
2 Faint not, brother, though thy burden
Daily grows more hard to bear;
Go and tell it all to Jesus,
He can lighten every care. [Refrain]
3 We are writing on the seashore,
Gazing on the faraway,
Where our friends in peace are dwelling
Safe in realms of endless day. [Refrain]Source: Fair as the Morning. Hymns and Tunes for Praise in the Sunday-School #165
