End of the Journey

Source unknown

Light after darkness, gain after loss;Strength after weakness, crown after cross;Sweet after bitter, hope after fears;Home after wandering, praise after tears;

Sheaves after sowing, sun after rain;Sight after mystery, peace after pain;Joy after sorrow, calm after blast;Rest after weariness, sweet rest at last;

Near after distant, gleam after gloom;Love after loneliness, life after tomb;After long agony, rapture of bliss;Right was the pathway, leading to this.
