The full text of this poetry tract card is shown below in the KJV version.

Through a scene of sin and sorrow
   Lies our lowly pilgrim way,
All around us death and darkness,
   All before us blissful day;
And the Morning Star of promise
   Brightly shines our hearts to cheer,
As we follow in the pathway
   Of the One who is not here.

O'er the world's most pleasing prospect
   Lies the shadow of the cross;
In the light of Christ in glory
   All earth offers is but dross.
This delusive scene around us
   Boundeth all the world holds dear;
We have found our rest for ever
   In the One who is not here.
Long 'neath sin and Satan's power
   Hath the earth in bondage lain,
Waiting the divine Deliverer,
   And Messiah's glorious reign.
On the world's horizon loometh
   Signs that soon He may appear—
Signs that gladden, signs that sadden,
   All who're waiting for Him here.

But He cometh as the Bridegroom,
   Ere appearing as the King,
His beloved Bride enraptured
   To the Father's house to bring;
And we're waiting and we're looking
   For the Day-Star to appear,
For our pilgrim hearts are longing
   For the One who is not here.
