Lyrics

After the mid­night, morn­ing will greet us;
After the sad­ness, joy will ap­pear;
After the tem­pest, sun­light will meet us;
After the jeer­ing, praise we shall hear.

Refrain

After the sha­dows, there will be sun­shine;
After the frown, the soul-cheer­ing smile;
Cling to the Sav­ior, love Him for­ev­er;
All will be well in a lit­tle while.

After the bat­tle, peace will be giv­en;
After the weep­ing, song there will be;
After the jour­ney there will be Hea­ven,
Burdens will fall and we shall be free.

Refrain

Shadows and sun­shine all thro’ the sto­ry,
Teardrops and plea­sure, day af­ter day;
But when we reach the king­dom of glo­ry,
Trials of earth will van­ish away.
