After the Mist and Shadow ~ Hymn

After the Mist and Shadow

After the mist and shadow,
After the dreary night,
After the sleepless watching,
Cometh the morning light;
Beautiful, soft and tender,
Leading the soul along,
Over the silent river,
Into the land of song.

After the thorny pathway,
After the storms we meet,
After the heart’s deep longing,
Joy and communion sweet;
After the weary conflict,
Rest in the Savior’s love,
Over the silent river,
Safe in the home above.

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.

Words: Fanny Crosby

  1. Good morning Ellen B,
    The lyrics to this hymn are so beautiful! I think Fanny Crosby is one of my favorites. I hope you have a lovely dry day.

    God bless, cori g.

  2. A truly gorgeous and peaceful photo. I’ve never before heard that hymn. It’s lovely and perfectly fitting to the scene. One can see Him everywhere. I love that.
