JOY AND PEACE IN BELIEVING




Sometimes a light surprises
the Christian while he sings;
It is the Lord, Who rises
with healing in His wings:
When comforts are declining,
He grants the soul again
A season of clear shining,
to cheer it after rain.


In holy contemplation
we sweetly then pursue
The theme of God’s salvation,
and find it ever new.
Set free from present sorrow,
we cheerfully can say,
Let the unknown tomorrow bring
with it what it may.


It can bring with it nothing
but He will bear us through;
Who gives the lilies clothing
will clothe His people, too;
Beneath the spreading heavens,
no creature but is fed;
And He Who feeds the ravens
will give His children bread.


Though vine nor fig tree neither
their wonted fruit should bear,
Though all the field should wither,
nor flocks nor herds be there;
Yet God the same abiding,
His praise shall tune my voice,
For while in Him confiding,
I cannot but rejoice.

In holy contemplation,
We sweetly then pursue
The theme of God’s salvation,
And find it ever new:
Set free from present sorrow,
We cheerfully can say,
E’en let th’ unknown tomorrow,
Bring with it what it may.
