Sunlight and Shadows

Representative Text

1 Following storm clouds, cometh the sunlight,
Following heartaches, cometh sweet peace;
So in our lives oft-times when in trouble,
Jesus is waiting to give us release.

Heartaches will come, and yet there's a blessing,
After each heartache, if we but knew,
Christ is behind the darkest of storm clouds,
Sunlight will come if to Him we're true.

2 Brooding o'er sorrow stealeth our comfort,
All will be well, for God's way is best,
Chastened and humble we see His glory,
Portrayed by whom was given the test. [Refrain]

3 Following earth life cometh the crowning,
Into God's kingdom, after a while;
Seeing the sunlight gleaming forever,
Shine from our Savior's welcoming smile. [Refrain]
