WHO CAN TELL




Great God, to thee Iíll make
My various sorrows known,
And with a humble hope
Approach thine awful throne:
Though by my sins
Deserving hell,
Iíll not despair,
ĎFor who can tell!í


Thou canst, though by a word,
My drooping spirit cheer,
And by thy Spirit form,
Thy glorious image there:
My foes subdue,
My fears dispel;
To thee Iíll seek,
ĎFor who call tell?í


In times of deep distress,
To thee alone Iíll fly,
Implore thy powerful aid,
And at thy footstool lie:
My case lament,
My wants reveal,
And patient wait;
ĎFor who can tell?í


My heart misgives me oft,
And conscience frowns within;
One gracious look of thine,
Will make it all serene:
My fears suggest,
That I shall dwell
In endless flames;
ĎBut who can tell?í


Vile unbelief, be gone!
Ye doubts, fly swift away;
God has an ear to hear,
Whilst Iíve a heart to pray:
If he be mine,
All will be well,
For ever so;
ĎAnd who can tell?í
