Better the storm with Jesus,
Better the wind and waves.
Better the strain at sea, than
Comfort the worldling craves.

Better the toil with Jesus,
Better the cost of love.
Better his servant’s wage, than
Riches from push and shove.

Better the shame with Jesus,
Better the sneers and scorn.
Better the world’s reproach, than
Praise of the Devil born.

Better the trial with Jesus,
Better the laboured prayer.
Better the night of faith, than
Shallow days free from care.

Better the cross with Jesus,
Better the wounded side.
Better the taken hurt, than
Hurt given back in pride.

Better the grave with Jesus,
Better the death to self.
Better the Father’s will, than
Comfort and praise and wealth.

Better the life with Jesus,
Better the hope of gain.
As with him we may suffer,
So with him we shall reign!

Romans 8:18 - For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
