Rhymes from the Cumberland

- "THE BEST OF ALL, GOD IS WITH US."


"THE BEST OF ALL, GOD IS WITH US."

DYING WORDS OF JOHN WESLEY.


When trials hard and sore we meet,
When thorns are piercing our tired feet,
raster
38
When heavy clouds o'erspread the sky,
When winds are wild and waves dash high,
The best of all, God is with us."

When earthly friends unfaithful prove,
When kindred hearts have ceased to love,
When grief the heart has sorely tried,
When Satan tempts on every side,
"The best of all, God is with us."

When we pass through death's valley dark
Of earthly light, without a spark,
When earthly friends from us have gone,
When earthly help and hopes have flown,
"The best of all, God is with us."

And when we reach that shining shore
Up yonder, where we die no more,
Up yonder, where from sin we're free,
The sweetest fact to us will be,
"The best of all, God is with us."
