PRAYER NOT ANSWERED




My God my life, my only joy,
Why thus conceal thy face?
Wilt thou my helpless soul forsake,
And leave me in distress?


To some secluded place I go,
And there thine aid implore,
With groans and tears, yet thence return
As burdened as before.


Then to thy house I turn my feet,
In hopes to find thee there;
Again depart without relief,
My sorrows still to bear.


Return, return, thou dearest Lord,
Nor longer hide thy face ;
To thee my strong desires ascend,
To taste and feel thy grace.
