Representative Text

1 Light in our darkness, hope in our fear,
Joy in our sorrow, still thou art near;
Constant, unchanging, praise to thy name,
Now and forever thou art the same.

Thou hast redeemed us,—we are thine own;
Thou wilt not leave us friendless alone;
Hope to the promise trustingly clings,
Thou wilt defend us under thy wings.

2 Gifts that with morning fall like the dew,
Still with the evening cheer us anew;
Songs of rejoicing, anthems of praise,
Lord, for thy goodness help us to raise. [Chorus]

3 What tho' the nightclouds frown on the deep?
Watch o’er thy loved ones thine eye will keep;
Rocked on the billow, weak and dismayed,
Thy voice wilt whisper, be not afraid. [Chorus]
