Verse 1: 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.
Verse 2: 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.
Verse 3: Shadows and sunshine all thru the story, teardrops and pleasure, day after day; but when we reach the kingdom of glory, trials of earth will vanish away.
Chorus: After the shadows, there will be sunshine; after the frown, the soulcheering smile; cling to the savior, love Him forever; all will be well in a little while.
