589. The Sun Behind the Cloud

1 In the Bible Jesus tells us we must suffer for His sake;
Though the world in trouble wears a gloomy shroud,
Heaven’s grace is all we need if we the consecration make,
We are sure the sun is shining just behind the cloud.

Refrain:
Just behind the cloud,
Just behind the cloud,
We are sure the sun is shining just behind the cloud;
Just behind the cloud,
Just behind the cloud,
We are sure the sun is shining just behind the cloud.

2 We are in a world of trouble, but the Lord is always near,
Though the people are so sinful, vain, and proud;
When the shadows dark are falling all around our pathway here,
We are sure the sun is shining just behind the cloud. [Refrain]

3 When the storms so black are raging over life’s tempestuous sea,
When reverses all around you closely crowd;
When the darkness seems to gather just as far as you can see,
We are sure the sun is shining just behind the cloud. [Refrain]

4 If we suffer as a Christian He’ll reward us over there;
Once beneath our load of sins He meekly bowed;
He will never let us suffer more than we can ably bear,
We are sure the sun is shining just behind the cloud. [Refrain]
