Full Text

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.

Refrain:
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]
