Representative Text

1. Tho' the pathway seemeth dark and dreary,
As in sadness we are waiting for the dawn,
There is hope and comfort for the weary,
Better days are coming on.

Chorus:
Better days are coming on;
Better days are coming on;
Better days, Better days,
Better days are coming, coming on.

2. Better days! when naught of sin and sorrow
Shall abide with those whose pilgrimage is done;
When the night shall yield to golden morrow
Better days are coming on. [Chorus]

3. Better days! O sweet the song in glory,
When the victory and crown of life are won,
And we sing redemption's wondrous story,
In the days soon coming on. [Chorus]
