82 - Light after darkness
 
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.
 
Refrein Now comes the weeping,
Then the glad reaping;
Now comes the labor hard,
Then the reward.
 
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.
 
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.
