In the heat of affliction,
      When bowed down with care,

In the heat of affliction,
      When bowed down with care,
In my troubles and worries,
      I pour out my prayer.
Thus I cast on my Saviour
      My burden of grief,
And I find in His presence
      The sweetest relief

Oh, the face of my Saviour
      Is shining and bright,
And the light of His favor
      Is joy in the night.

Though I’m burdened with sorrow,
      And pain grips my heart,
And the world all around me
      Is falling apart,
I can trust in God’s goodness,
      And hope in His grace;
I can walk in the shining
      Of light from His face.

Oh, the face of my Saviour
      Is shining and bright,
And the light of His favor
      Is joy in the night.

Though the tempter assails me,
      And terrors pursue;
Though my family forsake me,
      And friends prove untrue,
With my God there is mercy,
      And love without end.
He is faithful forever,
      And more than a friend.

Oh, the face of my Saviour
      Is shining and bright,
And the light of His favor
      Is joy in the night.
