Representative Text

1 When the day is sad and drear,
And the life is full of care;
When no friend is nigh to cheer,
And the burdens hard to bear,

Listen! a voice divine,
Whispers its message true—
“Come to me child of mine,
And I will comfort you,”
“Come to me child of mine,
And I will comfort you.”

2 Though the night be dark and long,
Soon will come the break of day;
We shall sing the morning song,
As the shadows flee away. [Refrain]

3 Loved ones who have gone before
Are with Christ at God’s right hand;
They shall sorrow nevermore,
In that glorious morning land. [Refrain]

4 We with them ere long shall stand,
In heav’n’s bright eternal day;
And with His own loving hand,
God shall wipe all tears away. [Refrain]
