If A Cloud Should Come Between Us


If a cloud should come between us
And the splendor of the sun,
If the rays of golden sunlight
Should be hidden one by one,
If across the stream and meadow
Suddenly a darkness came,
Should we question for a moment
That the sun shone just the same?

Refrain:
And tho’ life itself seems clouded,
With the darkness of despair,
Just remember that the shadow
Proves the light is always there.

If we hold to wrong opinions
Till they form a mighty wall,
If we harbor thoughts of error,
And forget that God is all,
If we live in mortal darkness,
Are we not ourselves to blame,
Since God’s truth beyond the shadow
Shines in splendor just the same? [Refrain]

Although pain and sin and sorrow
Seem to darken earthly days,
We may learn a simple lesson
From the sun’s obstructed rays,
And tho’ life itself seems clouded
With the darkness of despair,
Just remember that the shadow
Proves the light is always there. [Refrain]
