What If Here My Path Is Shadowed

What if here thy path is shadowed,
And the heavy clouds sweep low,
God’s almighty arms uphold thee
And he will not let thee go.

Trust him, trust him, through the shadow
Press the closer to his side;
Trust him, trust him, he will guide thee,
And no evil will betide.

All the way he knows, thy Father,
All its peril, all its pain,
Look to him, he will not fail thee,
And thou canst not trust in vain. [Refrain]

Yield thy soul to his dear keeping,
Lay thy hand within his own,
Tho’ life’s tempests gather o’er thee,
He will leave thee not alone. [Refrain]
