THOU IN FAITHFULNESS HAST AFFLICTED ME




Long unafflicted,undismayed,
In pleasure's path secure I strayed:
When mad'st me feel thy chastening rod,
And straight I turned unto my God.


What though it pierced my fainting heart—
I blessed thy hand that caused the smart;
It taught my tears awhile to flow,
But saved me from eternal woe.


Oh, hadst thou left me unchastised.
Thy precepts I had still despised.
With daring rebels been the same.
Or gone where mercy never came.


I love thee, therefore, O my God!
And long to reach thy dear abode;
Where, in thy presence fully blest,
Thy chosen saints for ever rest.

Long unafflicted,undismayed,
In pleasure's path secure I strayed:
When made to feel thy chastening rod,
I straight returned to thee, my God.


What though it pierced my fainting heart—
I bless the hand that caused the smart;
It taught my tears awhile to flow,
But saved me from eternal woe.


Oh, hadst thou left me unchastised.
Thy precepts I had still despised.
With daring rebels been the same.
Or gone where mercy never came.
