God hath not promised
Skies always blue, Flower-strewn pathways
All our lives through; God hath not promised
Sun without rain, Joy 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
