1 When times of troubles are at hand
The best that we can do,
Is to obey the Lord's command
And prove his promise true.

2 As gold is in the furnace tried
And cleans'd from filth and dross;
Thus we are purg'd and purified
by bearing Jesus' Cross.

3 We can't expect the crown to wear,
Which Christ in heav'n will give,
If we refuse the Cross to bear,
Whilst here on earth we live.

4 We must submit our cause to God,
And yield to do his will;
He lets us feel his chast'ning rod,
But grants his blessing still.

5 To be reproach'd for Jesus sake,
Proves him to be our Lord;
His Cross and suff'rings to partake,
Will have a great reward.

6 Then let us look beyond the grave
Where all our suff'rings cease;
Great, are the treasures we shall have
In everlasting peace.
