Hymn/Song Information

When God is nigh my faith is strong




When God is nigh, my faith is strong;
His arm is my almighty prop:
Be glad, my heart; rejoice, my tongue;
My dying flesh shall rest in hope.


Though in the dust I lay my head,
Yet, gracious God, thou wilt not leave
My soul for ever with the dead,
Nor lose thy children in the grave.


My flesh shall thy first call obey,
Shake off the dust, and rise on high;
Then shalt thou lead
the wondrous way
Up to thy throne above the sky.


There streams of
endless pleasure flow;
And full discoveries of thy grace
Which we but tasted here below
Spread heav'nly joys
through all the place.
