Representative Text

1 Tho’ the days are dark with trouble
And thy heart is filled with fear,
There is One that sees thee ever,
And will hold thee near and dear;
Cheerful hearts and smiling faces
Often make thee happy here;
Yet no one was e’er so happy
But sometimes the clouds appear.

Refrain:
There’s a Friend that’s ever near, never fear;
He is ever near, never, never fear;
There’s a Friend that’s ever near, never fear;
He is ever near, never fear.

2 Soon will dawn a brighter morning
On a blessed, tranquil shore,
Sighs will then give place to singing,
Tears to smiles, for evermore;
Thou shalt see a world of glory,
And eternal joy and bliss;
Let not, then, thy soul be moaning
O’er the woes and cares of this. [Refrain]
