Representative Text

1 When burdens of life seem too heavy to bear,
When storm-clouds are hiding in the blue,
O turn from the weight of your trouble and care,
And think of God’s promise to you!

Refrain:
Just think of God’s promise to you,
So faithful, so precious and true!
“I never will leave thee—no, never forsake!”
O think of God’s promise to you!

2 O look from the shadows to Jesus today,
And, striving his bidding to do,
Be mindful of blessings that brighten your way,
And think of God’s promise to you! [Refrain]

3 When seemeth in vain the good seed that you sow,
Remember bright sheaves you will view;
Then look for the sunshine, as onward you go,
And think of God’s promise to you! [Refrain]
