Representative Text

1 Through this dark valley of conflict and sin,
Trials without and temptations within,
Onward to glory, still urge thy lone way,
Joyful in hope of the long-promised day.
In every danger thou hast a sure Guide,
To every cloud there is yet a bright side;
Falter then not at the sternest behest,
Ever remember 'tis all for the best.

2 Just as the eagle, in teaching to fly,
Forceth her young from their covert so high;
Then if strength faileth, beneath them she flies,
On her wings beareth them safe to the skies;
So will the arm of Jehovah uphold:
In each affliction his mercies unfold;
Murmur then not that he stirreth thy nest,
Ever remember 'tis all for the best.

3 Never of Providence dare to complain,
Sunshine and storm both must ripen the grain;
Tried is the gold that the purest will shine,
Crushed is the vintage that yieldeth the wine.
He who the end from beginning can tell,
Works for thy good, for he doeth all well:
This, that prepares for the mansions of rest,
Ever remember 'tis all for the best.
