Hymn/Song Information

Why mournest thou my anxious soul




Why mournest thou, my anxious soul,
Despairing of relief,
As if the Lord o'erlook'd thy cares,
Or pitied not thy grief?


Hast thou not known, hast thou not heard,
That firm remains on high,
The everlasting throne of Him
Who made the earth and sky?


Art thou afraid his power will fail
In sorrow's evil day?
Can the Creator^s mighty arm
Grow weary or decay?


Supreme in wisdom as in power
The Rock of ages stands;
Thou canst not search his mind, nor trace
The working of his hands.


He gives the conquest to the weak.
Supports the fainting heart;
And courage in the evil hour
His heavenly aids impart.


Mere human energy shall faint,
And youthful vigour cease;
But those who wait upon the Lord
In strength shall still increase.


They, with unwearied step, shall tread
The path of life divine;
With growing ardour onward move,
With growing brightness shine.


On eagles' wings they mount, they soar
On wings of faith and love;
Till, past the sphere of earth and sin,
They rise to heaven above.
