Representative Text

1 I’m weary in this vale of woe,
Of sorrow everywhere I go,
But faith makes glad the darkest sky,
By whispering, "He is nigh."

I’m waiting only for Thy call,
My gracious Lord, my life, my all;
To joys beyond the golden gates,
Dear Jesus, Lord, I wait.

2 Some time the shadows thick and fast
Upon my sunlit skies are cast;
Then whispers, hope, forever bright,
"Beyond the cloud is light." [Refrain]

3 Oft times I feel my sinful load,
Too heavy on life’s weary road;
Then whispers love, in swee"t refrain,
"Trust, weary heart, again. [Refrain]
