REFUGE IN GOD




Dear Refuge of my weary soul,
On Thee, when sorrows rise,
On Thee, when waves of trouble roll,
My fainting hope relies.


To Thee I tell each rising grief,
For Thou along canst heal:
Thy Word can bring a sweet relief
For every pain I feel.


But oh, when gloomy doubts prevail,
I fear to call Thee mine;
The springs of comfort seem to fail,
And all my hopes decline.


Yet, gracious God, where shall I flee?
Thou art my only trust;
And still my soul would cleave to Thee,
Though prostrate in the dust.


Hast thou not bid me seek thy face?
And shall I seek in vain?
And can the ear of sovereign grace,
Be deaf when I complain?


No—still the ear of sovereign grace
Attends the mourner's prayer ;
O may I ever find access
To breathe my sorrows there?


Thy mercy-seat is open still,
Here let my soul retreat;
With humble hope attend Thy will,
And wait beneath Thy feet.
