Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.1025

First Line: Out of the shadow-land, into the sunshine,

Out of the shadow-land, into the sunshine,
Cloudless, eternal, that fades not away ;
Softly and tenderly Jesus will call us
Home, where the ransomed are gathering to-day.

Silently, peacefully, angels will bear us
Into the beautiful mansions above ;
There shall we rest from earth's toiling for ever,
Safe in the arms of God's infinite love.

2 Out of the shadow-land, weary and changeful,
Out of the valley of sorrow and night,
Into the rest of the life everlasting,
Into the summer of endless delight.

3 Out of the shadow-land, over life's ocean,
Into the rapture and joy of the Lord,
Safe in the Father's house, welcomed by angels,
Ours the bright crown and eternal reward.
