Full Text

1 Tho' the night be dark and dreary,
Tho' the way be long and weary,
Morn shall bring thee light and cheer;
Child, look up, the dawn is near.

Chorus:
There'll be joy by and by,
There'll be joy by and by;
In the dawning of the morning,
There'll be joy by and by

2 Tho' thine eyes are sad with weeping,
Thro' the night thy vigils keeping,
God shall wipe thy tears away,
Turn thy darkness into day. [Chorus]

3 Tho' thy spirit faints with fasting
Thro' the hours so slowly wasting,
Morn shall bring a glorious feast,
Thou shalt sit an honored guest. [Chorus]
