Lyrics

When clouds hang low, and dark thy path,
Then trust and know they’ll lift at last;
Whate’er the load, then look to God,
Though long the road, e’er onward plod.

Refrain

Shine through the sunshine,
Shine through the rain;
Shine through the shadows,
Shine through your pain;
Shine in the darkness,
The victory gain;
Shine in your trials,
Shine in His name.

With grace bear wrong, that Christ may reign;
Then lift a song, shine in His name;
Then shine for Him who died for you;
The victory win, He’ll see you through.

Refrain

Then God be praised, your faith made sight,
The banner raised, God’s love and light;
And from the heart will come the song,
That God made right to come from wrong.
