Comfort in Trials - By Gain From Suffering

Eng/Kor:727  Chin:528  Span:-  Rus:-  Tag:-  Fra:-  Por:-

Lyrics:Frances R. Havergal
Music:Ira D. Sankey

This hymn has a unique tune.


Light after darkness,

Gain after loss,

Strength after weakness,

Crown after cross;

Sweet after bitter,

Hope after fears,

Home after wand'ring,

Praise after tears.


Sheaves after sowing,

Sun after rain,

Sight after mystery,

Peace after pain;

Joy after sorrow,

Calm after blast,

Rest after weariness,

Sweet rest at last.


Near after distant,

Gleam after gloom,

Love after loneliness,

Life after tomb;

After long agony,

Rapture of bliss,

Right was the pathway,

Leading to this.
