Hymn/Song Information

FAITH IN GOD




Should famine oer the mourning field
Extend her desolating reign,
Nor spring her blooming beauties yield,
Nor autumn swell the fruitful grain;


Should loving herds, and bleating sheep,
Around their famished master die;
And hope itself despairing weep,
While life deplores its last supply;


Amid the dark, the deathful scene,
If I can say, The Lord is mine!
The joy shall triumph oer the pain,
And glory dawn, though life decline.


The God of my salvation lives;
My nobler life he will sustain;
His word immortal vigour gives,
Nor shall my glorious hopes be vain.


Thy presence, Lord, can cheer my heart
Tho' ev'ry earthly comfort die;
Thy smile can bid my pains depart,
And raise my sacred pleasures high.


O let me hear thy blissful voice,
Inspiring life and joys divine!
The barren desert shall rejoice,
Tis Paradise if thou art mine!
