1 There's a light in the cloud hanging over the way,
It sparkles with comfort,--that beautiful ray,
A gleam from the rainbow that circles the throne;
Our Father is reigning, and cares for His own.
There's a light, blessed light,
Look above! Look above!
What ever of sorrow our path may enshroud,
There's always, yes always, a light in the cloud.
2 Theres' a light in the cloud, and it shines from the cross
Where love everlasting transformed pain and loss;
Since Jesus so loves us, oh, let us believe
There's blessing intended in all we receive. [Refrain]
3 There's a light in the cloud, let us trust and not fear,
'T will widen and brighten till shades disappear;
We know that each radiant promise we see
Is pledge of a time when all darkness shall flee. [Refrain]
4 There's a light in the cloud that fore-tokens the home
Where storms never gather, where nights never come;
Then look up, rejoicing, and sing of the love
That sends down sweet beams from the glory above. [Refrain]
