Rejoice in the Lord Alway.
212

Rejoice in God alway;

When earth looks heavenly bright,

When joy makes glad the livelong day,

And peace shuts in the night.

Rejoice when care and woe

The fainting soul oppress;

When tears at wakeful midnight flow,

And morn brings heaviness.

Rejoice in hope and fear;

Rejoice in life and death;

Rejoice when threatening storms are near,

And comfort languisheth.

When should not they rejoice,

Whom Christ his brethren calls;

Who hear and know his guiding voice,

When on their hearts it falls?

So, though our path is steep,

And many a tempest lowers,

Shall his own peace our spirits keep,

And Christ’s dear love be ours.
