Light after Darkness

Verse 1:
Light after darkness,
Gain after loss,
Strength after weakness,
Crown after Cross:
Sweet after bitter,
Hope after fears,
Home after wandering,
Praise after tears.

Verse 2:
Sheaves after sowing,
Sun after rain,
Sight after mystery,
Peace after pain:
Joy after sorrow,
Calm after blast,
Rest after weariness,
Sweet rest at last.

Verse 3:
Near after distant,
Gleam after gloom,
Love after loneliness,
Life after tomb:
After long agony,
Rapture of bliss,
Right was the pathway,
Leading to this.

Frances R. Havergal/Ira D. Sankey
