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.

Refrain:
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]
