“Though the clouds may hang over, there will be a brighter day; in the land, they call Heaven; God shall wipe all tears away.   We shall behold the Lamb of God sitting on the Throne; There’ll be no more crying, no more weeping, trouble will be gone; Hallelujah! There’ll be joy forever more, When we reach that other shore”
