Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 In the Bible Jesus tells us we must suffer for His sake;
Though the world in trouble wears a gloomy shroud,
Heaven’s grace is all we need if we the consecration make,
We are sure the sun is shining just behind the cloud.

Refrain:
Just behind the cloud,
Just behind the cloud,
We are sure the sun is shining just behind the cloud;
Just behind the cloud,
Just behind the cloud,
We are sure the sun is shining just behind the cloud.

2 We are in a world of trouble, but the Lord is always near,
Though the people are so sinful, vain, and proud;
When the shadows dark are falling all around our pathway here,
We are sure the sun is shining just behind the cloud. [Refrain]

3 When the storms so black are raging over life’s tempestuous sea,
When reverses all around you closely crowd;
When the darkness seems to gather just as far as you can see,
We are sure the sun is shining just behind the cloud. [Refrain]

4 If we suffer as a Christian He’ll reward us over there;
Once beneath our load of sins He meekly bowed;
He will never let us suffer more than we can ably bear,
We are sure the sun is shining just behind the cloud. [Refrain]
