If you are in despair…

How distant seems past sunshine;

How dismal is the rain

When dark clouds of despair

Gather overhead again.

All the blessing we’ve been given

Seem nothing but hope lost

When we’re faced with our own sin

And are forced to bear the cost;

But no matter what you’ve done;

No matter what you’ve been;

God’s within your reach

To lift you out of sin.

So if you yearn for SONshine

And repent of what is past,

Turn your face toward Jesus

To be born again at last;

Then with Jesus in your heart

And with Him to guide your way

All the blessings of your longing

Can be yours each single day.
