Representative Text

1 Even in sorrow Christ is our friend;
Even in danger He will defend;
Kindly our pathway He will attend,
If at His footstool we humbly bend.

Come to the Savior, oh, sinner, come,
Cling to Him closely, nor longer roam;
He’ll guide you safely to rest and home;
Do not reject Him: Come, sinner, come.

2 We are most happy if we endure
For by our chastening we shall be pure;
Sin may not harm, or Satan allure,
If in His love we abide secure. [Refrain]

3 He is the light, the truth, and the way,
Trusting in Him we can never stray;
Heed now His call to come and obey,
Your night of sorrow shall change today. [Refrain]
