Sometimes The Day Seems Long

Sometimes the day seems long and drear,
The clouds of sorrow hover near,
And joy seems dead and pleasure gone;
But still I hope and journey on.

The Savior softly whispers,
“I will ever be your guide,”
Though paths are dark and dreary,
I will journey by your side;”
Trust him with trust unfailing,
Be strong, his strength availing,
Press on, o’er wrong prevailing,
To the home above.

Sometimes the light is low and dim,
And looming there are shadows grim,
The pathway leads by darkened ways;
But still I love through all the days. [Refrain]

Sometimes it seems so cold and far,
The distant, twinkling, gleaming star,
With naught of kindness in its glow;
But still I work and onward go. [Refrain]
