Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
First Line: After the mist and shadow, after the,
After the mist and shadow, after the
dreary night, [the morning light ;
After the sleepless watching, cometh
Beautiful, soft, and tender, leading the soul along,
Over the silent river, into the land of song.
2 After the thorny pathway, after the
storms we meet, [communion sweet ;
After the heart's deep longing, joy and
After the weary conflict, rest in the Saviour's love,
Over the silent river, safe in the home above.
3 After the cares and trials, after the toils and tears,
After the time of sowing, reaping thro' endless years ;
After the pilgrim journey, rapture that ne'er shall cease,
Over the silent river, rest in the land of peace.
