Hymn/Song Information

Lord I can suffer Thy rebukes When Thou




Lord, I can suffer Thy rebukes,
When Thou with kindness dost chastise;
But Thy fierce wrath I cannot bear:
O let it not against me rise.


Pity my languishing estate,
And ease the sorrows that I feel;
The wounds Thine heavy hand hath made,
O let Thy gentler touches heal!


See how I pass my weary days
In sighs and groans; and when ítis night
My bed is watered with my tears;
My grief consumes, and dims my sight.


Look, how the powers of nature mourn!
How long, Almighty God, how long?
When shall Thine hour of grace return?
When shall I make Thy grace my song?


I feel my flesh so near the grave,
My thoughts are tempted to despair;
But graves can never praise the Lord,
For all is dust and silence there.


Depart, ye tempters, from my soul;
And all despairing thoughts, depart;
My God, Who hears my humble moan,
Will ease my flesh, and cheer my heart.


---Alternative verses---


Pity my languishing estate,
And ease the sorrows that I feel;
The wounds Thy heavy hand hath made,
O Lord, in tender mercy heal!


Look, how the powers of nature mourn!
How long, Almighty God, how long?
When shall Thine hour of grace return?
When shall I make Thy grace my song?
