Christ My Song - 588
Shine on, sweet sun, and let my day - Shine on
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
2. I need not fear the awful night
that prophet-pens foretell as near;
for me there is no cloud nor gloom;
my firmament is fair and clear.
3. It may be that the wrath may burst,
and nations drink the cup of ill;
I need not tremble at the storm;
my summer shall be summer still.
4. Like the fair stars my peace shall be;
my life is hid with Christ in God.
My anchor is within the veil,
and there my soul hath her abode.
5. The dark to me is only bright;
calm, as the sea of glass, time's flood;
all grief is joy, and pain is ease,
and evil shall be only good.
Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope III, 1878, 28-29.
