1 Brother, is life’s morning clouded?
Has thy sunlight ceased to shine?
Is the earth in darkness shrouded,
Wouldst thou at thy lot repine?
Cheer up, brother, cheer up, brother,
Look above thee, light is near;
Soon will come the next transition,
“Trust in God, and persevere.”

Trust in God,
Trust in God,
Trust in God, and persevere.

2 Brother, has life’s hopes receded,
Hast thou sought its joys in vain?
Friends proved false when mostly needed,
Foes rejoicing at thy pain?
Cheer up, brother, there’s a blessing
Waiting for thee, never fear;
Foes forgiving, sins confessing,
“Trust in God, and persevere.” [Chorus]

3 Brother, all things round are calling,
With united voice, “be strong;”
Though the wrongs of earth be galling,
They must loose their force ere long.
Yes, my brother, though life’s troubles
Drive thee near to dark despair,
Soon ‘twill vanish like a bubble,
“Trust in God, and persevere.” [Chorus]
