When Lonely And Weary And Sad


When lonely and weary and sad,
And tempted to grieve and despond,
Look up, heart rejoice and be glad,
O think of the glory beyond.

Refrain:
There’s light tho’ the shadows are deep,
Oh, do not in sadness despond;
For Jesus will guard you and keep,
Till safe in the glory beyond.

Afflictions not always endure,
And tears His own hand there shall dry
Where joys are eternal and sure,
In yonder bright home in the sky. [Refrain]

Then trust in His promises blest,
‘Twill strengthen faith’s glorious bond;
He’ll lead you to portals of rest,
Safe home to the glory beyond. [Refrain]
