And when the day into darkness turns
And heart and soul and mind do yearn
Turn ye unto the Lord above
Cause underneath are the everlasting arms.
Trials may threaten to overtake
But only Him sense does make
When far yonder things still prevail
Look underneath to the everlasting arms.
Weary soul, do not give in
For He alone has taken our sin
Battles above and battles below
All fall into the everlasting arms.
Cry no more, oh do but shine
For victory in Jesus is mine
Nothing else should be a care
For underneath are the everlasting arms.
So when the night into brightness be
Forever secure and wedded to thee
Precious Saviour, yours alone
Underneath are the everlasting arms.
