When the trou­bles ga­ther
And the bil­lows roll,
Dark the way be­fore you,
Cares op­press the soul,
There is bless­èd sun­shine
Just be­yond your view;
Oft ’tis but a tri­al
You are go­ing through.


See the sun­light,
Shining bright and clear;
Blessèd sun­light
Drives away all fear;
Look above you,
Clouds will dis­ap­pear;
Put your trust in Je­sus,
He is ev­er near.

Though you can­not fa­thom
Why you’re called to bear
All the hea­vy bur­dens
That you can­not share,
Keep the cross be­fore you
In the dark­est day;
Put your trust in Je­sus
All along the way.


Go with faith to con­quer
Trials that ap­pear;
Know that Christ your Sav­ior
With His help is near;
Ne’er give up the bat­tle,
Hard though it may be,
For your Lord has pro­mised
You the vic­to­ry.


Though se­vere the con­flict
And the ang­uish deep,
Though the tri­als heavy
That may o’er you sweep,
God is al­ways with you,
Giving strength to bear
All the hea­vy bur­dens
When they shall ap­pear.


Tried and found not want­ing,
Will the Mas­ter say;
Tried, yet ev­er faith­ful,
All along life’s way;
Tried as in the fur­nace
Of re­fin­ing fire,
You shall see the tri­umph
Of your heart’s de­sire.
