1 No matter if clouds have o’er-shadowed the way,
This thought like a beacon has glowed;
It brightened the journey from day unto day,
There is light at the end of the road.

Refrain:
At the end of the road shall the light ever glow,
There the rest that was promised I know;
And the joy which I craved as I journeyed below,
Will be found at the end of the road.

2 No matter that burdens have come to my life,
I bore ev’ry wearisome load;
This promise is mine, ‘midst the toil and the strife,
There is rest at the end of the road. [Refrain]

3 No matter how often the sorrows would come,
This thought in my spirit abode;
Each day I am nearer my heavenly home,
There is joy at the end of the road. [Refrain]
