COMFORT IN SORROW




Deem not that they are blest alone
Whose days a peaceful tenor keep;
Th’anointed Son
of God makes known
A blessing for the eyes that weep.


The light of smiles shall fill again
The lids that overflow with tears;
And weary hours of woe and pain
Are promises of happier years.


There is a day of sunny rest
For every dark and troubled night;
And grief shall bide
an evening guest,
But joy shall come with early light.


And ye, who o’er a friend’s low bier
Now shed the bitter drops like rain,
Know that a brighter, happier sphere
Will give him to your arms again.


Nor let the good man’s trust depart,
Though life its common gifts deny,
Though with a pierced
and broken heart,
And spurned of men, he goes to die.


For God has marked
each sorrowing day,
And numbered every secret tear;
And heaven’s long age
of bliss shall pay
For all His children suffer here.


---Alternative verses---


Yes, a bright day of peaceful rest
Succeeds this dark and troubled night;
Though grief may bide an evening guest,
Yet joy shall come with early light.


Let not the Christian's trust depart,
Though life its common gifts deny;
Though with a sinking, fainting heart,
He sometimes almost longs to die;


The light of smiles shall fill again
The lids that now o’erflow with tears;
And weary hours of woe and pain
Are earnests of serener years.


O, there are days of hope and rest
For every dark and troubled night;
And grief shall bide, an evening guest,
But joy shall come with early light.
