Representative Text

1 Tho’ your path be lone and weary,
As you walk the narrow way,
And you’re tempted to turn back, tho’ hard you try;
There is not a day so dreary,
But you’ll see a shining ray,
From the rainbow of God’s promise in the sky.

Refrain:
See the rainbow of God’s promise in the sky,
Ev’ry cloud will vanish bye and bye;
Far the storms you need not fear,
Ev’ry ill will disappear,
See the rainbow of God’s promise in the sky.

2 Keep your heart fix’d on His promise,
As you battle ‘gainst the wrong,
There’s a brighter day, ‘tis coming bye and bye;
You will find there is no other,
Who can fill your heart with song,
Trust in God, and see His rainbow in the sky. [Refrain]

3 See His rainbow when in sorrow,
See His rainbow when you’re sad,
Trust the Father with your troubles, He is night;
Never fear about the morrow,
He will fill your heart with song,
Just look up and see His rainbow in the sky. [Refrain]
