Wouldst Thou Have Sunshine When Shadows

Wouldst thou have sunshine when shadows are deep?
Wouldst thou find rest tho’ thy pathway is steep?
Gladness and peace tho’ thou sufferest loss,
Sinner ’tis found by the way of the cross.

Tempests may rage and the billows may toss,
Refuge is found by the way of the cross,
Refuge, Refuge, Refuge is at the cross.

Friends may forsake thee and trials annoy,
Treasures of earth may prove naught but alloy,
Yet there awaits for each sorrow and loss,
Whispers of peace by the way of the cross. [Chorus]

Wouldst thou have life that is happy and blest?
Wouldst thou though toiling have wonderful rest?
Leave all thine idols that prove thee but dross,
Hasten t’ward Heav’n by the way of the cross. [Chorus]
