Why sinks my weak desponding mind Why




Why sinks my weak desponding mind?
Why heaves my heart the anxious sigh?
Can sov'reign goodness be unkind?
Am I not safe if God is nigh?


He holds all nature in his hand;
That gracious hand, on which I live.
Does life, and time, and death command,
And has immortal joys to give.


'Tis he supports this fainting frame.
On him alone my hopes recline;
The wondrous glories of his name,
How wide they spread! how bright they shine


My God, if thou art mine indeed,
Then I have all my heart can crave;
A present help in times of need,
Still kind to hear, and strong to save.
