Full Text

1 When waves of affliction sweep over the soul,
And sunlight is hidden from view,
If ever you’re tempted to fret or complain,
Just think of His goodness to you.

Refrain:
Just think of His goodness to you;
Yes, think of His goodness to you;
Though storms o’er thee sweep,
He is able to keep;
O think of His goodness to you.

2 The world may forsake you, and those whom you trust
May prove to be false and untrue;
There’s One you can trust even unto the end;
Just think of His goodness to you. [Refrain]

3 Misfortune’s dark cloud my hang over the way,
Despite your best efforts to do;
The Savior is guarding your treasures up there;
Just think of His goodness to you. [Refrain]

4 When dear ones are taken away from you here,
You loved with affection so true,
Look unto the savior for strength to endure,
And think of His goodness to you. [Refrain]
