The Latter Rain

Messages of Light Unto a World in Darkness


Author: David Nix

Rejoice in Sunshine or Sorrow

Praise my Father when the light of his glory shines down upon you,

Praise my Father when the light breaks forth within thy life.

Praise my Father for the birth of a child, healthy and whole,

Praise my Father for the birth of a child born blind and weak.

 

Chorus: Praise my Father, Praise the Son, when darkness falls, and in the rising sun.

Glorious and perfect are his ways, praise him in sunshine, praise him in sorrow,

Rejoice, rejoice.

 

Let the voices be lifted in songs of praise when the night is upon you,

Let the voices be lifted in rejoicing when the healing hand is seen.

Let men fall to their knees when darkness comes upon them,

Let men praise the Heavenly Ones when the glorious light of resurrection comes.

 

Chorus: Praise my Father, Praise the Son, when darkness falls and in the rising sun.

Glorious and perfect are his ways, praise him in sunshine, praise him in sorrow,

Rejoice, rejoice.

 

Lift hands unto my Father, praise me with thy lips, rejoice in the sunshine,

Lift hands of praise, glory hallelujah, He is God, rejoice in sorrow.

Rejoice in pain, rejoice in adversity, let all men praise him,

He is the God above all; in his presence there is joy, in sunshine or sorrow.

 

Chorus: Praise my Father, Praise the Son, when darkness falls and in the rising sun.

Glorious and perfect are his ways, praise him in sunshine, praise him in sorrow,

Rejoice, rejoice.

 

Rejoice my people; rejoice for the Almighty God is with you,

Rejoice for his mercy is upon you in times of happiness or pain.

His mercy never fails, he is full of love, he lifts the weary,

Rejoice in the Almighty, rejoice in sunshine, rejoice in sorrow.

 

Chorus: Praise my Father, Praise the Son, when darkness falls and in the rising sun.

Glorious and perfect are his ways, praise him in sunshine, praise him in sorrow,

Rejoice, rejoice.
