Hymn/Song Information

FEAR AND JOY




What wonders present to my view,
Tend to alarm and comfort too!
The various scenes of providence,
Objects of faith, and those of sense.


My daily food, my nightly rest,
Sorrows increased, and woes supprest;
The strengthening staff, the chastening rod,
A just and yet a pardoning God.


A dying and a risen Christ,
My glorious king, atoning priest;
Eternal pain and endless joy,
Alternately my thought employ.


And be they thus employed, till I
In you bright world above the sky,
Shall view them in a clearer light,
Transformed and ravished with the sight.
