Tomorrow! Oh sweet tomorrow!
Tomorrow is my fairyland
Sadly I think of Yesterday,
A barren wreck-strewn stretch of sand,
Beneath low skies of grey.
Tomorrow! Oh divine tomorrow!
I shall be brave and true tomorrow!
Weakness and failure marred Today!
My strength was sapped by pain and sorrow
I stumbled in the way.
Tomorrow, God! Oh sweet tomorrow!
Untouched and pure that new world lies!
Thy world, and mine, a golden strand
A golden dawn in cloudless skies!
Tomorrow is my fairyland!
