Hymn/Song Information

THE DISCIPLE OF JOY AND SORROW




My sky was once noon-bright,
My day was calm the while;
I loved the pleasant light,
The sunshine’s happy smile.


I said, “My God, oh! sure
This love will kindle mine;
Let but this calm endure,
Then all my heart is thine."


Thou trustedst me awhile:
O Lord! I was deceived;
I revelled in the smile,
Yet to the dust I cleaved.


Then the fierce tempest broke;
I knew from whom it came;
I read in that sharp stroke
A Father’s hand and name.


Must I be smitten, Lord?
Are gentler measures vain?
Must I be smitten, Lord?
Can nothing save but pain?


I said, “My God! at length
This stony heart remove;
Deny all other strength,
But give me strength to love.”
