God hath not promised

skies always blue,

Flower-strewn pathways

all our lives through;

God hath not promised

sun without rain,

Day without sorrow,

Peace without pain.

But God hath promised

strength for the day,

Rest for the labor,

Light for the way,

Grace for the trials,

Help from above,

Unfailing sympathy—

Undying love.
