THE UNCLOUDED DAY!

Genesis 9:16 –  Devotional

Genesis 9:16

“Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.”

Years ago my wife Joyce and I were driving along the beautiful Columbia River gorge in Oregon. A rain shower had recently swept across the region, and now bright sunlight flooded the area. As we drove, a rainbow kept pace beside the car. I know it was just a refraction of the sunlight, but what an awe inspiring sight.

There are two requirements to produce a rainbow, rain and sun. Without rain there could be no rainbow. Without sun there would be no rainbow. In the rainy times of our life, God’s tender care for us brings His rainbow of blessing. God’s covenant of love did not say that we would be free of rain, but He is always with us in the storms of life.

Back in 1879 Rev. J. K. Alwood was equally moved as he observed a rainbow in the western sky late one evening as he was traveling home. When he arrived at his home, he immediately composed the hymn for this week; The Unclouded Day.

The Unclouded Day

1. O they tell me of a home far beyond the skies, O they tell me of a home far away; O they tell me of a home where no storm clouds rise, O they tell me of an unclouded day.

Chorus: O the land of cloudless day, O the land of an unclouded sky; O they tell me of a home, where no storm clouds rise, O they tell me of an unclouded day.

2. O they tell me of a home where my friends have gone, O they tell me of that land far away; where the tree of life in eternal bloom sheds its fragrance thru the unclouded day.

Chorus: O the land of cloudless day, O the land of an unclouded sky; O they tell me of a home, where no storm clouds rise, O they tell me of an unclouded day.

3. O they tell me of the King in His beauty there, And they tell me that mine eyes shall behold, where He sits on the throne that is whiter than snow, In the city that is made of gold.

Chorus: O the land of cloudless day, O the land of an unclouded sky;O they tell me of a home, where no storm clouds rise, O they tell me of an unclouded day.

4. O they tell me that he smiles on His children there, and his smile drives their sorrows all away; And they tell me that no tears ever come again, In that lovely land of unclouded day.

Chorus: O the land of cloudless day, O the land of an unclouded sky; O they tell me of a home, where no storm clouds rise, O they tell me of an unclouded day.
