Songs in the night

Representative Text

1 When dark the night, and only
O'erhanging clouds I see;
I'll sing, when sad and lonely,
Of Jesus' love to me;
Sing, how he sought and found me,
When I had gone astray;
Till breaks the light around me
And shadows flee away.

Whatever the night is bringing,
Christ giveth a song to me;
And thro' the dark I'm singing,
"My faith looks up to thee,"
And thro' the dark I'm singing
"My faith looks up to thee."

2 When storms of grief assail me,
Dark wave succeeding wave,
I'll sing, when others fail me,
Of Jesus' pow'r to save:
I'll tell him all my sorrow,
Unburden all my woes;
Till dawns the glad tomorrow,
My song shall be "He knows." [Chorus]

3 Whene'er the way grows dreary,
Or age comes on apace,
I'll sing, tho' worn and weary,
Of Jesus' wondrous grace;
'Twill light death's gloomy portal,
And quell each rising fear;
Till bursts the song immortal
Upon the list'ning ear. [Chorus]
