There’s a song on my lips,
There’s a song in my soul,
Tho’ the waves of dis­tress
Deeply round me may roll;
For I know whom I trust,
Tho’ the way may be dim,
I shall safe­ly go home,
If I cling close to Him.


I will not be afraid
When the dark grave I see,
For my Sav­ior has died
And has ris­en for me.

There’s a light in my sky,
Since the break­ing of day,
When the seal rent in twain
And the stone rolled away;
For an an­gel spoke peace
To my spir­it’s alarm:
He is ris­en for thee;
There is no­thing to harm.


There is joy in my heart
All the long, wea­ry day,
For the storm ov­er­past
And the clouds rolled away;
There’s a rose for each thorn,
And a gain for each loss,
Since my Sav­ior Him­self
Gained a crown by the cross.
