Representative Text

1 It will not matter if my way be hard,
I have a loving Savior who will guide and guard;
And in the darkest nighttime the sky is always starred,
When I find my Jesus there.

Refrain:
When I find my Jesus there,
And his fellowship I share,
However dark the night,
Around me will be bright
When I find my Jesus there.

2 However bitter is the cup I drink,
I trust in Christ my Savior, and I will not shrink;
Or trav’ling o’er life’s quicksands,
I know I shall not sink,
When I find my Jesus there. [Refrain]

3 And when life’s heavy burdens press me sore,
My ever-loving Savior will my strength restore,
And I may rest in safety, nor fear the billows’ roar,
When I find my Jesus there. [Refrain]

4 When earthly tempests shall no longer blow,
When thro’ the gates of pearl, triumphant I shall go,
What peace, what boundless rapture, it will be mine to know,
When I find my Jesus there. [Refrain]
