Hope, and be undismayed:
God hears thy sighs, and counts thy tears;
God shall lift up thy head.
2 Through waves, and clouds, and storms,
He gently clears thy way:
Wait thou His time, so shall this night
Soon end in joyous day.
3 Still heavy is thy heart?
Still sink thy spirits down?
Cast off the weight, let fear depart,
Bid every care be gone.
4 What though thou rulest not?
Yet heaven, and earth, and hell
Proclaim, God sitteth on the throne,
And ruleth all things well!
5 Leave to His sovereign sway
To choose and to command;
So shalt thou wondering own His way,
How wise, how strong His hand.
6 Far, far above thy thought
His counsel shall appear,
When fully He the work hath wrought
That caused thy needless fear.
7 Thou seest our weakness, Lord;
Our hearts are known to Thee;
O lift Thou up the sinking hand,
Confirm the feeble knee!
8 Let us in life, in death,
Thy steadfast truth declare,
And publish with our latest breath
Thy love and guardian care. Topics: The Christian Life Comfort and Sympathy; Providence Used With Tune: CHISELHURST
