Hymn/Song Information

When oppressed with sore affliction In




When oppressed with sore affliction,
In the sacred word I find
Antidotes against dejection,
Sovereign balm to heal the mind;
As I turn the volume over,
And explore each ample page,
Treasures new I oft discover,
Which my warmest thoughts engage.


But at times, alas, I wander,
See, to read the word in vain,
And too oft that time I squander,
When true wisdom I might gain,
Pardon, Lord, my inattention,
Sacred energy impart.
To restore from this declension,
My deceitful wandering heart.


Shed on me thy rays transporting,
Dissipate the gloom within,
May I to thy word resorting,
Rescued be from every sin;
Let the joys of thy salvation,
Ever hence my powers engage,
Send thy truth to every nation,
Bid it shine from age to age.
