Representative Text

1 Tho’ we journey the pathway that leads thro’ the night,
And our feet may be weary and worn;
Every cloud will be lifted and all will be bright,
In the dawn of that golden morn.

All the trials of life will be nothing,
When the mists have been rolled away;
And the darkness of night
Will be turned into light,
In the dawn of eternal day.

2 There are questions and myst’ries that often arise,
As our footsteps we vainly retrace;
But they all shall be quickly erased from our eyes,
When we look in His blessed face. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ the road may seem long, and the journey be hard,
And our eyes may be blinded with tears,
There awaits for the faithful a glorious reward,
In the home of the endless years. [Refrain]
