PRAYER FOR STRONG FAITH




O, for a faith that will not shrink,
Though pressed by every foe,
That will not tremble on the brink
Of any earthly woe!


That will not murmur nor complain
Beneath the chastening rod,
But, in the hour of grief or pain,
Will lean upon its God.


A faith that shines more bright and clear
When tempests rage without;
That when in danger knows no fear,
In darkness feels no doubt.


That bears, unmoved, the world’s dread frown
Nor heeds its scornful smile;
That seas of trouble cannot drown,
Nor Satan’s arts beguile.


A faith that keeps the narrow way
Till life’s last hour is fled,
And with a pure and heavenly ray
Lights up a dying bed.


Lord, give us such a faith as this,
And then, whate’er may come,
We’ll taste, e’en here, the hallowed bliss
Of an eternal home.


---Alternative verses---


O, for a faith that will not shrink,
Though pressed by many a foe,
That will not tremble on the brink
Of poverty or woe!


That will not murmur nor complain
Beneath the chastening rod ;
But in the hour of grief or pain
Can lean upon its God ;


A faith that keeps the narrow way
Till life s last spark is fled,
And with a pure and heavenly ray
Lights up the dying bed.


Lord, give me such a faith as this,
And then, whate'er may come,
I taste e'en now the hallowed bliss
Of an eternal home.


Lord, give me such a faith as this,
And then, whate’er may come,
I’ll taste, e’en here, the hallowed bliss
Of an eternal home.
