Though The Way Seems Dark Before You


Tho’ the way seems dark before you,
Brother, don’t despair;
Brighter light shall yet shine o’er you,
In this world of care.
He who by His mighty power,
Holds the sea and land,
Still is near, tho’ dark the hour,
He will help you stand.
Still is near, tho’ dark the hour,
He will help you stand.

Refrain:
He will help you stand,
He will help you stand,
Always near, He’ll not forsake you,
God will help you stand.

Is your heart depressed, my brother?
Jesus is your friend;
He will save you, He will lead you
To your journey’s end.
Do not fear to trust Him, brother,
See His wounded hand;
He has died for your redemption,
He will help you stand.
He has died for your redemption,
He will help you stand. [Refrain]

At the hearth-stone lov’d ones praying,
Pleading for their son,
With a parent’s supplication
For the wayward one.
Loved one, cast your sins behind you,
Join the ransomed band;
Grace sufficient He will give you,
He will help you stand.
Grace sufficient He will give you,
He will help you stand. [Refrain]

Many pray’rs for you are rising
To the throne of grace,
Can you still His love despising,
Turn from Him your face?
Brother, rise from sin and sorrow,
Take thy Father’s hand;
Fear no doubt of sin tomorrow,
He will help you stand.
Fear no doubt of sin tomorrow,
He will help you stand. [Refrain]
