1 Just beyond where the shadows are falling
Is a bright, summer land, ever fair;
With the brilliance of day it is glowing,
And the night never falls over there.

Refrain:
The beautiful light is shining so clear,
Where darkness can never come;
Soon we shall have passed the shadowy vale,
And anchored in peace at home.

2 I’ll not fear when I pass through the valley,
Though encompassed by shadows of night,
For I know that beyond it is shining
An eternal and glorious light. [Refrain]

3 With His rod and His staff He will comfort,
When obscured is the light of the day;
If I trust in the word of His promise,
With His hand He will guide all the way. [Refrain]

4 Shall we weep when we know the departed
With their toils and their cares now are done,
And the bliss of eternity’s ages
In the presence of God is begun? [Refrain]
