Crown After Cross – Hymn

0

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

Refrain:
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.

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.
