One night, while sad and lonely, when hope from me had fled,
My heart within was heavy. I wished that I were dead;
And as my weary eyelids closed on the lingering tear,
A voice as If from heaven stealing whispered in my ear,
A voice as if from heaven stealing whispered in my ear:

Cheer up, sad heart: cheer up, sad heart, and banish the falling tear;
Though the clouds above are dark, the sky beyond is clear.
There's health for you, there's wealth for you,
And to make your blessings three, one that's good and one that's true
Is coming with love for thee, is coming with love for thee.

And as I sweetly slumbered all through the silent night,
I saw the future rising, the past sink out of sight;
And when at daylight's dawning the god of sleep took flight,
I heard that voice still softly singing the song of a future bright,
I heard that voice still softly singing the song of a future bright.-Chorus.
