Representative Text

1 If the clouds should thickly gather,
Over all your sunny sky;
If your eyes that ought to shine, are filled with tears;
Go alone and pray to Jesus,
You shall see his smiling face,
And receive his tender blessing, for he hears.

Chorus:
Blessed smiling, gracious smiling,
You shall see the blessed smiling of his face,
Never doubt, when you’re in trouble,
If you lift your eyes in pray’r,
You shall see the blessed smiling of his face.

2 If your heart is sorely tempted,
And you know not what to do;
If your voice, that should be joyful, murmurs low;
Go alone and pray to Jesus,
You shall see his smiling face,
He will shield you from temptation where you go. [Chorus]

3 If you wait alone and weary,
At some parting of the way;
If your heart, that should be cheerful, falters, sad;
Turn your tho’t and pray to Jesus,
You shall see his smiling face,
And he’ll surely give you reason to be glad. [Chorus]
