VERSE 1
Take heart, O servants of the Lord,
amid the cloudy journey.
Though shadows seem to shade His Word,
they cannot hide His mercy.
When providence is manifest
in tempests of affliction,
Behind the storm is Jesus Christ:
the Sun of our salvation.

VERSE 2
Serve not the dark desires within,
nor wicked foes, nor tempters.
Their subtle lies would lure us in,
but Christ our King will conquer.
We firmly stand in Jesus’ might
against enticing evil:
He dresses us in radiant light—
the armor of His gospel.

VERSE 3
We walk by faith and not by sight
while living in this darkness,
But grief will change into delight
when Christ returns in brightness.
Let us take heart until we see
the risen Lamb of suff’ring.
Then we before His throne will be
like Him, forever shining!
