1 Fear not, tho’ amid the darkness
He is calling you to go;
Tho’ no glimmer of the sunlight
Shines upon your path below;
He is leading, Christ, your Saviour,
Do not shrink at His command;
Follow on, into the shadow,
Yes, the shadow of God’s hand.
Thro’ the shadow, yes, the shadow
Of the loving Father’s hand,
WE shall pass to light and gladness,
In the blessed glory land.
2 They are still within His quiver,
Who are trusting in His grace;
Brightest in the darkened chamber,
Gleams the beauty of His face.
Are the lessons hard He sends You?
Ah! you cannot understand;
You are safe within the shadow,
Blessed shadow of God’s hand. [Refrain]
3 O be glad He counts you worthy
For His sake to suffer loss;
Ever thro’ death’s gloomy valley
Shines the glory of the cross.
‘Mid the darkness and the stillness,
Patient tread at His command;
You shall pass to life immortal,
‘Neath the shadow of God’s hand. [Refrain]
