Humble yourselves…under the mighty hand of God…Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you.@1 Peter 5:7

Clar­ence B. Strouse, 1911 (🔊 pdf nwc).

If you are discouraged,
In darkness or in doubt,
If you are downhearted,
The Lord can bring you out;
Don’t give o’er the battle,
The victory you can win,
Open your heart to Heaven,
And the glory will come in.

Refrain

Open your heart to Heaven,
And the glory will come in;
Open your heart to Heaven,
And the glory will come in;
Tell Jesus all your trials,
He’ll save you from your sin;
Open your heart to Heaven,
And the glory will come in.

Do you long for comfort
This world has never brought?
Do you carry burdens
Your many sins have wrought?
Take it all to Jesus;
Your friend He’s always been,
Open your heart to Heaven,
And the glory will come in.

Refrain

When you’re sorely tempted
Because of some defeat;
When you have forebodings,
Of trials you’re to meet,
Trust and do not worry,
Thy faith will surely win,
Open your heart to Heaven,
And the glory will come in.

Refrain

When life’s joys and sorrows,
Its hopes and fears are o’er,
When with those we’ve labored,
We reach the golden shore,
We’ll rejoice forever,
For victory over sin,
Open your heart to Heaven,
And the glory will come in.

Refrain
