God Shall Wipe All the Tears Away

Representative Text

1 Though the clouds may hover o'er us,
There's a bright and golden ray:
It's the promise that in heaven,
God shall wipe all tears away.

Refrain:
When we reach that blessed homeland,
Where 'tis everlasting day,
On that bright eternal morning,
God shall wipe all tears away.

2 No more sorrow, no more weeping,
Peace and joy shall hold full sway,
For beside life's crystal river,
God shall wipe all tears away. [Refrain]

3 Every care will be forgotten,
All our burdens we shall lay
Safe within the walls of jasper,
God shall wipe all tears away. [Refrain]

4 O the joy of meeting Jesus,
Mortal tongue cannot portray,
But we know when we behold Him,
God shall wipe all tears away. [Refrain]
