PLEADING WITH GOD UNDER AFFLICTION




Why should a living man complain
Of deep distress within,
Since every sigh, and every pain
Is but the fruit of sin?


Lord to thy dealings I'll submit,
Nor would I dare rebel;
Yet sure I may, here at thy feet,
My painful feelings tell.


Thou seest what floods of sorrows rise;
And beat upon my soul;
Deep calls to deep—O hear my cries,
While stormy billows roll.


From fear to hope, and hope to fear,
My ship-wrecked soul is tossed;
Till I am tempted in despair
To give up all for lost.


Yet through the stormy clouds I look
Once more to thee, my God;
O fix my feet on Christ, the rock,
Who bought me with his blood.


One look of mercy from thy face,
Will set my heart at ease;
One all-commanding word of grace
Will, make the tempest cease.
