I would drive it from my breast, With thy own sharp two-edged sword, Far as the east is from the west. Nor let the pow rs of darkness boast That I am foil d and thou art grieved! And now I see returning light, The Lord, my Sun, appears. Lord, since thou didst hide thy face. What has my soul endured? But now tis past, I feel thy grace, And all my wounds are cured!
You only who have known his arts, You only who have felt his darts, Can pity such a case as mine. Then bringing forth my heart to view, Too well what s hidden there he knew, He show d me ten times worse within. And smiling day once more appears, Then, my Redeemer, then I find The folly of my doubts and fears. But when my faith is sharply tried,.
I find myself a learner yet, Unskilful, weak, and apt to slide. My spirit thirsts to prove Renew d supplies of pard ning grace, And never-fading love. They swarm like summer flies, They cleave to every thing I do, And swim before my eyes. How toilsome then to sing and pray And wait upon the word? I glean a berry here and there, But mourn the vintage past. I wander and languish and pine. Thine arm is not shorten d since then, And those who believe in thy name Ever find thou art Yea and Amen, Through all generations the same.
Might this favour be granted to me, I'd smile at the rage of my foes. But ah! Agitated in my mind, Like a feather in the air, Can I thus a blessing find? My soul, can this be pray r? Then I see his smiling face, Feel the pledge of joys to come, Often, Lord, repeat this grace Till thou shalt call me home. A poor blind creature of a day, And crush d before the moth!

Without thee all beneath the skies No real pleasure can afford.
Terror almost stops his breath, While each step he looks for death. When I could triumph with the saints, And join their songs of praise! But it has been in such a way As almost drove me to despair.

The bitter is sweet, The med cine is food; Though painful at present, Twill cease before long, And then,! Are not all things in his hand?
Has he not his promise pass d? Will he then regardless stand, And let me sink at last? If he worms and sparrows feed, Clothe the grass in rich array, Can he see a child in need, And turn his eye away? Now his mercy-seat I know. If he would not give me up When my soul against him fought. Will he disappoint the hope Which he himself has wrought? Satan, vain is thy device!
Here my hope rests assured, In that great redemption price I see the whole secured.
But true faith securely leans On the promise, in the means. How canst thou want if he provide, Or lose thy way with such a guide? And has he not his promise pass d, That thou shalt overcome at last?

Nor less to praise him when he grants Beyond what I can ask.
When comforts are declining, He grants the soul again A season of clear shining, To cheer it after rain. Pleasant too, to sit and tell What we owe to love divine; Till our bosoms grateful swell And eyes begin to shine. Methinks from earth I see him rise!
Angels congratulate his lot, And shout him welcome to the skies! To thee for help I call; I stand upon a mountain s edge, Oh, save me, lest I fall! He would fain destroy my hope, But the promise bears it up. Sure tis he himself has taught me How to seek his face by pray r: After so much mercy past, Will he give me up at last? And may I still approach thy throne, And Abba, Father, cry? He told me I was surely lost, And God had left me quite.
Oh that you, as well as I, May his wondrous mercy prove! Must I be a cumber- ground, Unfruitful all my days? Do I in thy garden grow, Yet produce thee only leaves? Lord, forbid it should be so!

Is my inquiry now. Where, said I, in deep distress, Will these sinful pleasures end? How shall I secure my peace, And make the Lord my friend?
