Peace doubting heart my God's I am




Peace, doubting heart!
my God's I am;
Who formed me man, forbids my fear;
The Lord hath called me by my name;
The Lord protects, for ever near;
His blood for me did once atone,
And still he loves
and guards his own.


When passing through
the watery deep,
I ask in faith his promised aid,
The waves all awful distance keep,
And shrink from my devoted head;
Fearless their violence I dare;
They cannot harm, for God is there!


To him mine eye of faith I turn,
And through the fire pursue my way;
The fire forgets its power to burn,
The lambent flames around me play;
I own his power, accept the sign,
And shout to prove the Saviour mine.


Still nigh me, O my Saviour, stand!
And guard in fierce temptation's hour;
Hide in the hollow of thy hand,
Show forth in me thy Saving power,
Still be thy arms my sure defence,
Nor earth nor hell shall
pluck me thence.


Since thou hast bid
me come to thee,
(Good as thou art, and strong to save)
I'll walk o'er life's tempestuous sea,
Upbourne by the unyielding wave,
Dauntless, though rocks
of pride be near,
And yawning whirlpools of despair.


When darkness
intercepts the skies,
And sorrow's waves around me roll,
When high the storms
of passion rise,
And half o'erwhelm my sinking soul,
My soul a sudden calm shall feel,
And hear a whisper, "Peace; be still!"


Though in affliction's furnace tried,
Unhurt on snares and death I'll tread;
Though sin assail,
and hell, thrown wide,
Pour all its flames upon my head,
Like Moses' bush,
I'll mount the higher,
And flourish unconsumed in fire.
