by Jim Reeves    [3/4 time]
written by Alice Hawthorne and Alton Howard

C           F           C   Am
Soft as the voice of an an-gel
G7                   C
Breathing a lesson unheard
            C7           F
Hope with a gentle persuasion
C            G7         C
Whispers her comforting word
              G7          C Am
Wait till the darkness is o-ver
G7            D7         G    G7
Wait till the tempest is done
C            F        C   Am
Hope for the sunshine tomorrow
C         G7          C
After the darkness is gone
G7         C
Whispering hope
      G7          C
O how welcome thy voice
F         C            G7       C
Making my heart in its sorrow rejoice
          F           C   Am
If in the dusk of the twi-light
G7                C
Dim be the region afar
             C7        F
Will not the deepening darkness
C            G7         C
Brighten the glimmering star
              G7       C    Am
Then when the night is upon us
G7             D7         G    G7
Why should the heart sink away
C             F           C Am
When the dark midnight is o-ver
C             G7          C
Watch for the breaking of day
repeat #3
