When You Come To Snares And Pitfalls


When you come to snares and pitfalls,
When temptations round you throng;
Bravely meet each threat’ning danger,
Just approach it with a song.

Refrain:
Gather up each joy and blessing,
Ev’ry hour of bliss prolong;
In God’s strength meet sin or sorrow,
Just approach it with a song.

Gladly take each joy that’s offer’d,
Ev’ry smile that comes along;
Then when grief stands in your pathway,
Just approach it with a song. [Refrain]

Trust in God, He’ll keep you ever,
He will help you conquer wrong;
Do not flinch at sight of danger,
Just approach it with a song. [Refrain]

Do not fear the tempter’s power,
Faint not, tho’ the road is long;
God will help you meet each peril,
Just approach it with a song. [Refrain]
