Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Psalm 30:5

If you know where to get a good pho­to of Hall or Bar­nard (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), would you ?


Just beyond this vale of tears,
Where the cares of life annoy;
Just beyond a few short years,
There is everlasting joy.


Just beyond, just beyond,
All our cares will be gone;
Just beyond, just beyond,
We shall rest just beyond.

Friends will reunited be,
No one ever will despond,
Souls from sorrow will be free,
In that homeland just beyond.


Angel voices sweetly blend,
Singing songs of love and praise;
Rapture is without an end,
Just beyond these pilgrim days.
