1 Tho’ the skies are gray
All along your way,
And the sun cometh not in view;
O do not despair,
There’s no cause for fear,
Just look for the patch of blue.

Refrain:
O look for the patch of blue,
‘Twill come in view;
Be brave and your strength renew,
Stand fast, be true,
O look for the patch of blue,
‘Twill come in view;
Tho’ skies are gray along your way,
Just look for the path of blue.

2 When the burdens press,
And your cares distress;
And you scarcely know what to do;
When your foes assail,
And your strength would fail,
Just look for the path of blue. [Refrain]

3 When there is no friend
Who can comprehend,
And you feel you can ne’er get through;
There is one who loves,
In the heav’n above,
Just look for the path of blue. [Refrain]
