AFTER THE STORM

When the ship sails home, and the storm is over,
and the gulls return to the shore;
when the sun warms the sand, and the tides are lower,
and the songbird sings at the door;
when the loved ones gather in glad congregation,
as they did in times before,
the children will sing in glad celebration,
and we won't be afraid anymore.

Chorus
The day will dawn, shining and new !
The people will sing a joyous song !
Hearts will rejoice, faithful and true.
Eyes will glow with the Glorious Dawn,
and the Clear Stream will flow through !
The Clear Stream will flow through !

When the land is healed, and the tempest has passed;
when the Shepherd returns for His Fold;
when winds blow gentle, and we've passed the test,
and the fields are shining like gold;
when children laugh and freely play,
and the house has an open door;
when Elders counsel, and parents pray,
the wars will be no more.

Chorus
The day will dawn, shining and new !
The people will sing a joyous song !
Hearts will rejoice, faithful and true.
Eyes will glow with the Glorious Dawn,
and the Clear Stream will flow through !
The Clear Stream will flow through !
