When The Way Seems Dark And Drear


When the way seems dark and drear,
And thy soul is filled with fear,
What a refuge strong is found in Jesus;
Never let thy faith grow dim;
Trust thy all in all to him;
What a refuge strong is found in Jesus.

Refrain:
He has promised to be with us unto the end,
Be not afraid, be not afraid,
Every trial draws him nearer, his aid to lend,
Be not dismayed, be not dismayed.

When the clouds so intervene
That no star of hope is seen,
What a refuge strong is found in Jesus;
Fly to him in earnest pray’r,
Seek his wealth of loving care;
What a refuge strong is found in Jesus. [Refrain]

When our earthly comforts fail,
And the foes of life prevail,
What a refuge strong is found in Jesus;
Then beneath his banner true
We may all our foes subdue;
What a refuge strong is found in Jesus. [Refrain]
