Hymn/Song Information

PAINS AND PLEASURES OF LIFE




Thick clouds surround the throne,
but love sits regent there;
God ever just and good,
Demands our humble fear:
He speaks the word,
The billows rise;
He speaks again,
The tempest dies.


Through pains and pleasure mixed
This life’s a bitter sweet;
And heaven alone can make
Our happiness complete:
For that bright world,
Dear Lord, prepare;
And when prepared,
Oh seat us there!
