Hymn/Song Information

Light after darkness gain after loss




Light after darkness, gain after loss,
Strength after weakness, crown after cross;
Sweet after bitter, hope after fears,
Home after wandering, praise after tears.

Now comes the weeping,
then the glad reaping;
Now comes the labor hard,
then the reward.



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.

Now comes the weeping,
then the glad reaping;
Now comes the labor hard,
then the reward.



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.

Now comes the weeping,
then the glad reaping;
Now comes the labor hard,
then the reward.
