Why should cross and trial grieve me




Why should cross and trial grieve me?
Christ is near with His cheer,
Never will He leave me.
Who can rob me of the Heaven
That Godís Son for my own
To my faith hath given?


Though a heavy cross Iím bearing
And my heart feels the smart,
Shall I be despairing?
God, my Helper, Who doth send it,
Well doth know all my woe
And how best to end it.


Hopeful, cheerful, and undaunted
Everywhere they appear
Who in Christ are planted.
Death itself cannot appall them,
They rejoice when the voice
Of their Lord doth call them.


Death cannot destroy forever;
From our fears, cares and tears
It will us deliver.
It will close lifeís mournful story,
Make a way that we may
Enter heavenly glory.


What is all this life possesses?
But a hand full of sand
That the heart distresses.
Noble gifts that pall me never
Christ, our Lord, will accord
To His saints forever.


Lord, my Shepherd, take me to Thee.
Thou art mine; I was Thine
Even ere I knew Thee.
I am Thine, for Thou hast bought me;
Lost I stood, but Thy blood
Free salvation bought me.


Thou art mine; I love and own Thee.
Light of Joy, neíer shall I
From my heart dethrone Thee.
Savior, let me soon behold Thee
Face to faceómay Thy grace
Evermore enfold me!
