CONSOLATION




'Tis thy own voice in tender pity falling,
Softly and low, O Comforter divine,
Voice of thy love, to us so gently calling,
Bidding us rest our bruised hearts in thine.

Dark is our path, we grasp thy hand for leading,
Thou hast the light whereby alone we see;
We cannot tell, but thou dost own our needing,
So we resign ourselves, our all to thee.


Saviour and Friend, our weakness on thee leaning,
Thine is the strength that will the burden bear;
Kind are thy ways, could we but read their meaning,
Did we but trust thy ever watchful care.

Dark is our path, we grasp thy hand for leading,
Thou hast the light whereby alone we see;
We cannot tell, but thou dost own our needing,
So we resign ourselves, our all to thee.


Thou, too, hast wept such, tears as we are weeping,
Sharing on earth our human grief and pain;
Bowed o'er the grave where thy beloved lay sleeping,
Help us to pray, all other help is vain.

Dark is our path, we grasp thy hand for leading,
Thou hast the light whereby alone we see;
We cannot tell, but thou dost own our needing,
So we resign ourselves, our all to thee.


Deep in thy heart our fears and sorrows hiding,
Shelter us safe through these sad hours of woe:
There, dearest Lord, in lowly faith abiding,
Rest may we find, and truest comfort know.

Dark is our path, we grasp thy hand for leading,
Thou hast the light whereby alone we see;
We cannot tell, but thou dost own our needing,
So we resign ourselves, our all to thee.
