DESPONDENCY




Him wilt thou keep in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on thee;
Me, Lord, from pining care release,
And vain perplexity.


‘Tis not the bleeding wounds of grief,
Whose anguish I bemoan;
An evil heart of unbelief,
A cold, hard heart of stone;—


O’er this, in loneliness, I wake,
And darkness to be felt,
Since Sinai’s thunders cannot break,
Nor calvary’s sufferings melt.


Uncheered with hopes, unawed by fears,
All comfort banished hence,
O for a burst of contrite tears!
A pang of penitence!


O for one grain of saving faith,
Upspringing in my breast!
“Come unto me,” my Saviour saith,
“And I will give thee rest.”


I hear, I know the joyful sound;
I fly that call to meet,
And find, what all who sought have found,
Rest at his blessed feet.
