Representative Text

1. Keep in heart, be ever patient,
There’s a light behind the cloud;
Be not gloomy or discouraged,
Let not mists your soul enshroud.

Oh, be patient, ever patient,
When life’s cares around you crowd;
Oh, be patient, ever patient:
There’s a light behind the cloud.

2. You remember Christ had trials
That were many and were sore;
And you may be only passing
O’er the ground He trod before. [Refrain]

3. You can rift the cloud with sunshine
If your heart is glad within,
And make brighter paths to travel
If you prayerfully begin. [Refrain]

4. All the light of life eternal,
That has shone the ages through,
Still exists, and is but waiting
To illuminate the true. [Refrain]
