JOY COMETH IN THE MORNING




O deem not they are blest alone
Whose lives a peaceful tenor keep ;
For God, who pities man hath shown
A blessing for the eyes that weep.


The light of smiles shall fill again
The lids that overflow with tears,
And weary hours of woe and pain
With promises of happier years.


There is a day of sunny rest,
For every dark and troubled night ;
And grief may bide an evening guest,
But joy shall come with early light.


Nor let the good man's trust depart,
Though life its common gifts deny;
Though with a pierced and broken heart,
And spurned of men, he goes to die.


For God has marked each sorrowing day,
And numbered every secret tear;
And heaven's long age of bliss shall pay 
For all his children suffer here. 


---Alternative verses---


O deem not they are blest alone
Whose lives a peaceful tenor keep ;
The Power who pities man has shown
A blessing for the eyes that weep.


For God has marked each sorrowing hour,
And numbered every secret tear ;
And heaven's long age of love and power
Grows out of all we suffer here.
