Smiling Skies Will Bend Above Us


Smiling skies will bend above us,
When the shadows flee;
Hearts now cold again will love us,
When the shadows flee;
We shall lose our care and sorrow,
Trouble nevermore to borrow,
On that blessed, peaceful morrow,
When the shadows flee.

Refrain:
With eternal day before us,
And our Saviour watching o’er us,
We shall join the endless chorus,
When the shadows flee.

Fetters nevermore will bind us,
When the shadows flee;
This dark vale will be behind us,
When the shadows flee;
There will be no tempest sweeping,-
In our loving Father’s keeping
We shall wake, where none are weeping,
When the shadows flee. [Refrain]

We shall view our home supernal,
When the shadows flee;
We shall meet our King eternal,
When the shadows flee;
There, where death will reach us never,
There, where naught our hearts shall sever,
We shall dwell with Christ forever,
When the shadows flee. [Refrain]
