Rejoice alway

Representative Text

1 What tho' the storm of life is hard,
And all our comfort flies away,
The promise of the Lord endures;
In him we can rejoice today.

Rejoice today, his love alway
Shall bring sweet comfort o'er and o'er;
He soon will say, "Ye blessed, come,
Enter my joy, forevermore."

2 What tho' our way may seem obscure,
And trying tho'ts may often rise:
A word of prayer lights up our way:
Rejoice in God, and so be wise. [Chorus]

3 What tho' our future hopeless be
For gold and silver do not lust:
If he can save us evermore,
He can today; rejoice and trust. [Chorus]

4 What tho' our friends may from us turn,
For sympathy and love we sigh;
Tho' e'er so dark the cloud may be,
Rejoice in God; he stayeth by. [Chorus]

5 And when the days of cloud are past,
And all men must before him stand,
How great the joy to us shall be,
If we may stand at his right hand. [Chorus]
