“Though the clouds may hang over, there will be a brighter day. In that land they call heaven, God shall wipe all tears away. We shall behold the lamb of God, sitting on the throne. There will be no more crying, no more weeping, troubles will be gone. Hallelujah, there will be joy forever more, when we reach that other shore.”
