I can see my life from the earth side;
I can feel its sorrows and pains.
I can taste of its joys and its gladness;
I can sense its losses and gains.
But I can see only the earth side;
The other is hid from my view.
I can see it but darkly,
I can see it but partly,
But God sees the other side, too.
Someday I shall stand on the heaven side;
Someday with the Lord I shall be.
Someday through the glories up yonder
The whole of my life I shall see.
And shall I then care for the losses?
Shall I then care for trouble and pain?
With the heaven side’s glory
To light up the story,
My losses shall only be gain.
