Representative Text

1 Look aloft! the clouds are breaking,
There’s a rainbow in the sky,
Blessed promise of our Saviour,
That the light of hope is nigh;
Through the storm and through the sunshine,
To the mansions fair above,
I am walking, ever walking,
In the summer of his love.

In the summer, blessed summer,
In the summer of God’s love,
Sing, my soul, in glad hosannas!
For the summer of God’s love.

2 What have I to fear, though sorrows
Round me like the billows roll?
In the secret of his presence,
He will safely keep my soul.
Are there trials and temptations?
I can face them with a smile,
For this life will soon be over;
It is such a little while. [Refrain]

3 So I’m walking in the summer
Of his love, so pure and bright,
Watching, waiting, looking ever
For the coming of the light,
Blessed light of heaven’s morning,
When my Saviour’s face I’ll see,
And my lips shall sing his praises
Through a long eternity. [Refrain]
