Whenever days are darkened (Merthyr Cynog) – Piano, Flute and Horn


Wondrous Heavenly Love. Meter: 76 86D

Whenever days are darkened
I think on Jesus’ Name:
To let the light come flooding in,
For soul’s release He came.
That blesséd Name I love to hear,
The Name that casts away my fear,
That overflows me from above:
O!  Wondrous, heavenly love!

If times I feel that I’m alone,
I think on Jesus’ Name:
To feel His gentle touch once more,
Upon this ailing frame.
That shepherd’s touch, for me He cares,
The Father’s love with me He shares,
Then overflowing from above,
O!  Wondrous, heavenly love!

When the days have brightened,
I think on Jesus’ Name:
To know He’s always with me,
Constantly the same.
Securely by my Saviour’s side,
Evermore to keep and guide,
Then overflowing from above,
Such wondrous, heavenly love!
