We Often Grow Weary And Lonely And Sad


We often grow weary, and lonely, and sad,
The sky with clouds is o’ercast,
But all will be beauty, and gladness and love,
When the veil is lifted at last.

Refrain:
When the veil is lifted at last!
And the storms of life are all past;
I’ll dwell evermore, on eternity’s shore,
When the veil is lifted at last.

How the jewels now hid from our weak mortal sight,
Oft won with tears falling fast,
Will shine in each crown in yon heaven’s pure light,
When the veil is lifted at last. [Refrain]

I shall meet my Redeemer, my Saviour, my King,
My dear ones and friends of the past;
In that beautiful city, where cometh no night,
When the veil is lifted at last. [Refrain]
