Though The Days Are Dark With Trouble


Tho’ the days are dark with trouble
And thy heart is filled with fear,
There is One that sees thee ever,
And will hold thee near and dear;
Cheerful hearts and smiling faces
Often make thee happy here;
Yet no one was e’er so happy
But sometimes the clouds appear.

Refrain:
There’s a Friend that’s ever near, never fear;
He is ever near, never, never fear;
There’s a Friend that’s ever near, never fear;
He is ever near, never fear.

Soon will dawn a brighter morning
On a blessed, tranquil shore,
Sighs will then give place to singing,
Tears to smiles, for evermore;
Thou shalt see a world of glory,
And eternal joy and bliss;
Let not, then, thy soul be moaning
O’er the woes and cares of this. [Refrain]
