Representative Text

1 When the heart’s sad with its burden of care,
When the dark clouds gather round ev’rywhere,
Still trust in Him the dear Father above;
Back of the clouds is the sunshine of love.

Refrain:
Back of the clouds is sunshine,
The sunshine of God’s love;
Flowing so freely from heaven
Is the sunshine of God’s love.

2 His way is best, yield yourself to His will,
Never a storm that His voice cannot still;
Tho’ but one step may be clear to your view,
Do not despair, He is thinking of you. [Refrain]

3 Under His care, tho’ the shadows may fall,
Lean on His word who is Lord over all;
Praise to His name, He’ll send light from above,
Back of the clouds is the sunshine of love. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
