JOY IN SORROW




Iíve found a joy in sorrow,
a secret balm for pain,
A beautiful tomorrow
of sunshine after rain;
Iíve found a branch of healing
near every bitter spring;
|:A whispered promise stealing
oíer every broken string.:|


Iíve found a glad hosanna
for every woe and wail;
A handful of sweet manna
when grapes of Eschol fail;
Iíve found a Rock of Ages
when desert wells are dry;
|:And, after weary stages,
Iíve found an Elim nigh.:|


An Elim with its coolness,
its fountains, and its shade;
A blessing in its fullness,
when buds of promise fade;
Oíer tears of soft contrition
Iíve seen a rainbow light,
|:A glory and fruition,
so near! yet out of sight.:|


My Savior, Thee possessing,
I have the joy, the balm,
The healing and the blessing,
the sunshine and the psalm;
The promise for the fearful,
the Elim for the faint,
|:The rainbow for the tearful,
the glory for the saint!:|
