Sometimes a light surprises the Christian while he sings;
It is the lord who rises with healing in his wings;
When comforts are declining, he grants the soul again
A season of clear shining to cheer it after rain.

In holy contemplation we sweetly then pursue
The theme of God’s salvation and find it ever new
Set free from present sorrow we cheerfully can say—
Let the unknown tomorrow bring with it what it may

No matter what life brings God will surely bear us through
Who gives the lilies clothing will clothe His people too
Beneath the spreading heavens our world is daily fed
And He who feeds the sparrows will give His children bread

Verse 4:
The fig tree may not blossom, no grapes the vine may bear
Though all the fields should wither, and worry fill the air
Yet God the same abiding, his praise shall tune my voice
For while in Him confiding I happily rejoice.
