Representative Text

1 Blessed words for evil day:
This, this, too, will pass away!
Weeping for a night endures;
Joy the morning light ensures.

Refrain:
Rejoice in the Lord!
Rejoice in the Lord!
For weeping may endure for a night,
But joy cometh in the morning.

2 Bravely hope, aspire, endure;
God’s own counsel standeth sure,
Ev’ry day of fortune’s frown
Hastens joy with robe and crown. [Refrain]

3 Speeds the hour when tears and pain
I can never know again,
Trustful, to this truth I cling;
Raptured, I this grace shall sing. [Refrain]

4 Blessed words for evil day:
This, this, too, will pass away!
Weeping for a night endures;
Joy the morning light ensures. [Refrain]
