1 When the way is bright with sunshine,
When the clouds of darkness come,
One there is who’s ever near you,
Jesus Christ the Holy One.
When the way is sad and lonely,
And the eyes with tears are dim,
Turn, O mourner in your sorrow,
Turn and tell your grief to Him.
In the sunshine, in the shadow,
With a word of comfort dear,
He is waiting there to help you,
Christ the Lord is ever near.
2 Though the future seems uncertain,
And the clouds oft-time appear,
Let this promise be your comfort,
Jesus Christ is ever near.
When the wanderer turneth backward,
From the paths of sin so dear,
If he cries “O help me Master!”
He will find Him ever near. [Refrain]
