Through the tears of sorrow that most surely fill our eyes,

We see him there before us as we look t'ward Paradise.

Standing on the threshhold of that system bright and new,

We can see him just beyond.  Now, can't you see him, too?

There he is!  Oh, what a sight so joyous to behold!

He seems so calm, so happy!  He's not sick and he's not old!

As we approach, he sees us, and he smiles in recognition.

This is what we focus on and keep fixed in our vision!

This is what Jehovah wants our tear-filled eyes to see,

Because the resurrection is his loving guarantee.

And so we smile beneath our tears and keep this sight in view.

For see!  Our brother's waiting and, you see, he's smiling, too!
