Beyond earthís sunshine and its rain,
Beyond all weariness and pain,
†††† Thou art at rest.
Eíen though we mourn our loss, we joy to feel
†††† Thou art so blest.
Now privileged to see unfold
Godís purpose in the scroll unrolled
†††† By Christís own hand.
And thou hast made report: ďIíve done as Thou,
†††† Lord, didst command.Ē
Along the dark and narrow way
Thy faithfulness casts back a ray
†††† Of hope and cheer;
For thou so joyously thy cross did bear,
†††† With scarce a tear.
We pray for strength to do Godís will,
To wait and suffer and be still.
†††† As thou hast done.
Nor faint, nor fear, but still run on until
†††† The prize is won.
