157—SHADOWS

When we cross the valley there need be no shadows,
When life's day is ended and its sorrows o'er;
When the summons comes to meet the blessed Saviour,
When we rise to dwell with Him for evermore.

Shadows! no need of shadows!
When at last we lay life's burdens down;
Shadows! no need of shadows!
When at last we gain the victor's crown.

When our loved ones leave us there need be no shadows
If their faith is fixed in Jesus as their Lord:
For they go to be with Jesus, their Redeemer,
To be with the One whom they have long adored.

When he comes to meet us there need be no shadows.
When He comes in all His glorious array;
When the trump of God shall sound and loved ones waken
When He leads us onward with triumphant sway.
