THE AFFLICTED REMEMBERING GOD




Affliction is a stormy deep
Where wave resounds to wave:
Though oer my head the billows roll,
I know the Lord can save.


The hand, which now withholds my joys,
Can reinstate my peace;
And he, who bade the tempest roar,
Can bid the tempest cease.


In the dark watches of the night
Ill count his mercies oer;
Ill praise him for ten thousand past,
And humbly sue for more.


When darkness and when sorrows rose,
And pressed on every side,
The Lord has still sustained my steps,
And still has been my guide.


Here will I rest, and build my hopes,
Nor murmur at his rod:
Hes more than all the world to me,
My health, my life, my God.


---Alternative verses---


The hand, which now withholds my joys,
Can restore my peace;
And he, who bade the tempest roar,
Can bid the tempest cease.


The hand, that now withholds my joys,
Can restore my peace;
And he, who bade the tempest rise,
Can bid the tempest cease.


In darkest scenes when sorrows rose,
And pressed on every side,
The Lord has still sustained my steps,
And still has been my guide.
