When the Mists have Rolled Away

Verse 1:
When the mists have rolled in splendor
From the beauty of the hills,
And the sunlight falls in gladness
On the river and the rills:
We recall our Father’s promise
In the rainbow of the spray;
We shall know each other better
When the mists have rolled away.

Refrain:
We shall know as we are known, as we are known,
Never more to walk alone, to walk alone,
In the dawning of the morning
Of that bright and happy day;
We shall know each other better,
When the mists have rolled away.

Verse 2:
Oft we tread the path before us
With a weary, burden’d heart,
Oft we toil amid the shadows,
And our fields are far apart:
But the Saviour’s “Come, ye blessed!”
All our labor will repay
When we gather in the morning
Where the mists have rolled away.

Verse 3:
We shall come with joy and gladness,
We shall gather round the throne;
Face to face with those that love us,
We shall know as we are known;
And the song of our redemption
Shall resound through endless day,
When the shadows have departed,
When the mists have rolled away.
