Though dark the path my feet may tread

Representative Text

1 Tho’ dark the path my feet may tread, it is but joy to know
There’ll be no shadows on the other side;
We should not fear the wildest storm, but sing as on we go,
There’ll be no shadows on the other side.

Refrain:
There’ll be no shadows, no shadows,
Jesus is the sunshine of that land so fair;
There’ll be no shadows, no shadows,
Pain and death can never enter there.

2 Life’s brightest day may have its clouds, but still our heart should sing,
There’ll be no shadows on the other side;
‘Twill not be long till cares are o’er and we are with the King;
There’ll be no shadows on the other side. [Refrain]

3 We’re marching homeward to a land where weary feet may rest;
There’ll be no shadows on the other side;
No pain or sorrow e’er can touch the regions of the blest;
There’ll be no shadows on the other side. [Refrain]
