1 Sad soul, be strong! ere long, ere long,
Thy burdened prayer shall end in song!
The day draws near, that day so dear;
Take courage, heart, ’twill soon be here.

Refrain:
Oh, that sweet day, when Christ shall say,
"Come, faithful one, away, away!"
What glad surprise awaits our eyes
In that dear land of paradise!

2 Wait on thy Lord! rest in His word,
He will all needful grace afford;
E’en while you pray, your longings may
Be stilled in hope of that sweet day. [Refrain]

3 In every grief, ’twill give relief
To know, tho’ sharp, it must be brief;
In every care which thou must share,
This thought will help thee bravely bear. [Refrain]

4 ’Twill soon be o’er! no more, no more,
Shall thy sad heart sin’s work deplore;
Let doubts all cease, and perfect peace,
Shall antidote thy soul’s release. [Refrain]
