If the Way Be Full of Trial, Weary Not

Representative Text

1 If the way be full of trial, weary not;
If it's one of sore denial, weary not;
If it now be one of weeping,
There will come a joyous greeting,
When the harvest we are reaping,
weary not, Weary not.

Do not weary by the way,
Whatever by thy lot;
There awaits a brighter day,
To all, to all who weary not, weary not.

2 If the way be one of sorrow, weary not;
Happier will be the morrow, weary not.
Here we suffer tribulation;
Here we must endure temptation;
But there'll come a great salvation,
Weary not, Weary not. [Chorus]

3 If misfortunes overtake us, weary not;
Jesus never will forsake us, weary not.
He will leave us never, never;
From his love there's a naught can sever;
Glory to the Lamb forever,
weary not, Weary not. [Chorus]
