HALLOW THIS GRIEF




Father! who in the olive shade,
When the dark hour came on,
Didst, with a breath of heavenly aid,
Strengthen thy Son;


O, in the anguish of our night,
Send us down blest relief;
And to the chastened, let Thy might
Hallow the grief!


And thou, that, when the starry sky
Saw the dread strife begun,
Didst teach adoring faith to cry,
Thy will be done!


By thy meek spirit, thou, of all
That eer have mourned the chief,
Thou Saviour! if the stroke doth fall,
Hallow this grief!

Send us down blest relief;
And to the chastened, let Thy might
Hallow the grief!


By thy meek spirit, thou, of all
That eer have mourned the chief,
Our Saviour! when the stroke doth fall,
Hallow our grief!
