DARK AND DISTRESSING




O’erwhelmed with wonder and surprise,
‘Mid the dark scenes of providence,
To heaven we raise our suppliant eyes,
And wait for light and guidance thence.


Saints for a time may be oppressed,
And broken with repeated woes;
But God will give them ease and rest,
And plead their cause against their foes.


OR if his anger grow severe,
‘Tis but to purge away their sin;
And though the furnace be prepare,
It is to make their graces shine.


Thick clouds may veil his awful throne,
And wrathful arrows fly abroad;
Yet to his saints he still is known,
The righteous and the faithful God.
