In Troublesome Times



Things on this earth are growing worse,
It is so plain to see:
There are wars and rumors of wars,
We struggle to be free,
Nation rising against nation –
So much turmoil and fear,
This whole world is being shaken…
The end is surely near…
Such troublesome times!

But all these things must come to pass
Before the best can be;
Our refuge is in Jesus Christ,
Soon His face we shall see.
Be sure you know Him as your Lord,
He is our only hope;
Anchored in Him, we are secure…
We have the grace to cope...
In troublesome times.

Our Lord is always with us, friend,
When in Him we abide,
And whatever troubles may come,
He is there by our side.
One day He is coming again…
Oh, what a glorious day!
Our redemption is drawing nigh…
Let us look up and pray…
In Troublesome Times.

 “When these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads;
for your redemption draweth nigh.” “Watch ye therefore, and pray always,
that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass,
and to stand before the Son of man.”
(Lu 21:28, 36)
