God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.@1 John 1:5

Lewis E. Jones, 1903; appeared in The Finest of the Wheat No. 3, edited by George D. Elderkin, Charles C. McCabe, William J. Kirkpatrick, Henry L. Gilmour, George W. Elderkin & Franklin A. Hardin (Chicago, Illinois: George D. Elderkin, 1904), number 40 (🔊 pdf nwc). Some hymnals show the lyricist as Edgar Lewis, one of Jones’ pseudonyms.

Tho’ dark the path my feet may tread,
It is a joy to know
There’ll be no shadows
On the other side;
We should not fear the wildest storm,
But sing as on we go,
There’ll be no shadows
On the other side.

Refrain

There’ll be no shadows, no shadows,
Jesus is the sunshine of that land so fair;
There’ll be no shadows, no shadows,
Pain and death can never enter there.

Life’s brightest day may have its clouds,
But still our hearts should sing,
There’ll be no shadows
On the other side;
’Twill not be long till cares are o’er
And we are with the King;
There’ll be no shadows
On the other side.

Refrain

We’re marching homeward to a land
Where weary feet may rest;
There’ll be no shadows
On the other side;
No pain or sorrow e’er can touch
The regions of the blest;
There’ll be no shadows
On the other side.

Refrain
