Representative Text

1 They shall be comforted, sorrowing heart;
Soon every cloud will forever depart;
Joy, wondrous joy, in that beautiful day,
When God shall wipe every teardrop away,
When God shall wipe every teardrop away.

Refrain:
Never a sorrow, never a fear,
Never a shadow, never a tear;
They shall be comforted in that sweet day,
When God shall wipe every teardrop away.

2 They shall be comforted, Jesus says so;
True and eternal His promise, we know;
Gentle His smile, and how tender His voice,
Bidding His children in Him to rejoice,
Bidding His children in Him to rejoice. [Refrain]

3 They shall be comforted, yea, even here;
Blessèd the mourner whom Jesus shall cheer;
Sunbeams of glory thro’ times fleeting showers,
Heaven around us—this Savior is ours!
Heaven around us—this Savior is ours! [Refrain]

4 They shall be comforted, rise, then, and shine;
Shine in the beauty of love so divine;
Let others find where the "still waters" flow,
They may be comforted, Jesus says so;
They may be comforted, Jesus says so. [Refrain]
