11424. Light Beyond The Shadows

1 When the troubles gather and the billows roll,
Dark the way before you, cares oppress the soul,
There is blessèd sunshine just beyond your view;
Oft ’tis but a trial you are going through.

See the sunlight, shining bright and clear;
Blessèd sunlight drives away all fear;
Look above you, clouds will disappear;
Put your trust in Jesus, He is ever near.

2 Though you cannot fathom why you’re called to bear
All the heavy burdens that you cannot share,
Keep the cross before you in the darkest day;
Put your trust in Jesus all along the way. [Refrain]

3 Go with faith to conquer trials that appear;
Know that Christ your Savior with His help is near;
Ne’er give up the battle, hard though it may be,
For your Lord has promised you the victory. [Refrain]

4 Though severe the conflict and the anguish deep,
Though the trials heavy that may o’er you sweep,
God is always with you, giving strength to bear
All the heavy burdens when they shall appear. [Refrain]

5 Tried and found not wanting, will the Master say;
Tried, yet ever faithful, all along life’s way;
Tried as in the furnace of refining fire,
You shall see the triumph of your heart’s desire. [Refrain]
