Representative Text

1 Toiling, and often weary,
Yet there is joy in serving Christ our King;
Leaning upon His promise,
With assurance I can sing.

So I’m singing hallelujahs!
In the cloud or in the sunshine,
Satisfied to be with Jesus
In the darkest night or in the day,
Nothing here can ever harm me,
Nor the foes of earth alarm me,
While I’m walking hand in hand
With Jesus all the way.

2 Weeping, but never murm’ring,
Thro’ all my tears I see His loving smile;
Walking, but never lonely,
He is with me all the while. [Refrain]

3 Trusting that He will bring me
Thro’ ev’ry trial, ev’ry trouble here;
Knowing I shall be like Him,
All my doubts now disappear. [Refrain]
