Now Our Eyes Are Often Dim

Now our eyes are often dim,
Tear-stained with the trials of life,
But we know that when Christ comes,
There’ll be no more of pain nor strife.

God shall wipe away all tears,
God shall wipe away all tears,
And when He comes again,
There’ll be no weeping then,
For God shall wipe away all tears.

Hearts are broken ev’rywhere,
Sin has marred and scarred our way;
Soon we’ll meet Him in the sky,
No more of sin on that glad day. [Refrain]

Saddened then by dear ones lost,
Taken from this earthly fold;
Oh! what joy ’twill be up there,
To meet them on the streets of gold. [Refrain]
