Through The Mists Of Shadows


Thro’ the mists of shadows dreary,
O’er the dark and stormy sea,
Came a voice of heav’nly music,
Floating thro’ the gloom to me;
‘Twas a voice of wondrous sweetness,
Bringing words of hope and love,
Whispering to my troubled spirit,
“Dark below, but light above.”

Refrain:
‘Twas a voice of wondrous sweetness,
Bringing words of hope and love,
Whispering to my troubled spirit,
Dark below, but light above.

Often when life’s shadows gather
Round my weary troubled soul,
Comes that voice of angel sweetness,
Whispering I am near the goal;
Telling me, in softened murmurs,
Bringing words of hope and love,
Saying to my doubting spirit,
“Dark below, but light above.” [Refrain]

Soon I’ll reach those golden portals,
Soon I’ll cross life’s troubled sea,
Whence that voice of music floating,
Came and whispered hope to me;
There in Heav’n’s own light forever,
In that sunlight of God’s love,
Shall I find that saying truthful,
“Dark below, but light above.” [Refrain]
