SEEKING REST




With guilt oppressed and full of fear
I look for help, but none is near,
’Tis thine, oh Lord, to grant;
Round me the threatening surges roll,
Do thou their turbulence control,
Nor let my spirit faint.


Unnumbered sins disturb my rest,
And keenest anguish fill my breast,
Vouchsafe, oh Lord, to hear ;
Low at thy feet my soul would lie,
Behold my grief with pitying eye,
In answer to my prayer.


‘Arise and shine,’ was once the word,
Repeated now, would strength afford —
Reveal thy lovely face;
This shall excite new strains of joy,
And praise shall all my life employ,
While I adore thy grace.
