LOOKING TO GOD IN TROUBLE




God of my life, to Thee I call;
Afflicted, at Thy feet I fall;
When high the water-floods prevail
Leave not my trembling heart to fail!


Friend of the friendless and the faint,
Where should I lodge my deep complaint?
Where but with Thee, Whose open door
Invites the helpless and the poor!


Did ever mourner plead with Thee,
And Thou refuse that mournerís plea?
Does not the Word still fixed remain
That none shall seek Thy face in vain?


That were a grief I could not bear,
Didst Thou not hear and answer prayer;
But a prayer hearing, answering God
Supports me under every load.


Fair is the lot thatís cast for me!
I have an Advocate with Thee;
They whom the world caresses most,
Have no such privilege to boast.


Poor though I am, despised, forgot,
Yet God, my God, forgets me not;
And he is safe, and must succeed,
For whom the Lord vouchsafes to plead.


Then hear, O Lord, my humble cry
And bend on me Thy pitying eye.
To Thee their prayer Thy people make:
Hear us for our Redeemer's sake.

God of my life, to Thee I call;
Afflicted, at Thy feet I fall;
When the great water floods prevail
Leave not my trembling heart to fail!


God of our life, to Thee we call;
Afflicted, at Thy feet we fall;
When the great water floods prevail
Leave not our trembling heart to fail!


Friend of the friendless and the faint,
Where should we lodge our deep complaint?
Where but with Thee, Whose open door
Invites the helpless and the poor!


Then hear, O Lord, our humble cry
And bend on us Thy pitying eye.
To Thee their prayer Thy people make:
Hear us for our Redeemer's sake.
