Text

VERSE 1: After the shadow is past, my love,/ And sunshine beams forth once again/ Then will a happiness enter within/ Our hearts that are now fill'd with pain/ Then will the light of our love brightly gleam/ Though storms now assail thick and fast/ But we will be happy, dear, yuo and I/ After the shadow is past.
CHORUS: Some day the sunlight on our love will shine/ The darkness can not always last/ And we will be happy, dear, you and I/ After the shadow is past.
VERSE 2: After the shadow is past, my love,/ How sweet is the hope that some day/ We'll meet and together all sorrow forget/ We'll journey thro' love's sunny way/ When fate in her pity and kindness shall break/ The spell that is now o'er us cast/ And give to each heart the sweet boon that it craves/ After the shadow is past.
