He'll Take You Through

Representative Text

1 In the midst of joy and blessing,
And when all the way seems bright,
Clouds may come which seem distressing,
And they may obscure the light;
Though you weep at night with sorrow,
And the gloom oppresses you,
Joy is sure to come tomorrow,
He’ll take you through, He’ll take you through.

He’ll take you through, however you’re tried;
His tender care is never denied;
Then always trust His promise so true,
He’ll take you through, He’ll take you through.

2 It may seem God does not hear you,
And withholds the gift you seek,
Then just learn to trust His silence
When the Father does not speak;
Let your heart new courage borrow,
For His promises are true,
He’ll reward your faith tomorrow,
He’ll take you through, He’ll take you through. [Refrain]

3 Think not strange of fiery trial,
Which is sent your faith to try,
Though it mean great self-denial
To live for Him, or to die;
Count it joy to share Christ’s sorrow,
Gladness then will come to you,
For there’s sure a bright tomorrow,
He’ll take you through, He’ll take you through. [Refrain]

4 When affliction is upon you,
You may say, as Job of old,
“When He’s tested, when He’s tried me,
I shall then come forth as gold”;
Then take courage in your sorrow,
Cease your sighs, let tears be few,
Just remember on the morrow,
He’ll take you through, He’ll take you through. [Refrain]

5 Then, O brother, never waver,
Even though in prison cast,
Though you lose all worldly favor,
You will gain a crown at last;
And when trials all have ended,
If to Jesus you’ve been true,
Then the pearly gates will open,
He’ll take you through, He’ll take you through. [Refrain]
