I cannot call affliction sweet

Author: James Montgomery Hymnal: Sacred Poems and Hymns #182 (1854) Meter: 8.6.8.6 Topics: Affliction; Prayer in affliction Lyrics: I cannot call affliction sweet, And yet 'twas good to bear: Affliction brought me to Thy feet, And I found comfort there. My weanèd soul was all-resign'd To Thy most gracious will; Oh! had I kept that better mind, Or been afflicted still! Where are the vows which then I vow'd, The joys which then I knew? Those vanish'd, like the morning cloud, These like the early dew. 185 Lord, grant me grace for every day, Whate'er my state may be, Through life, in death, with truth to say, "My God is all to me!"

Affliction is a stormy deep

Hymnal: Hymns, Selected and Original #461 (1828) Meter: 8.6.8.6 Topics: Affliction sanctified Lyrics: 1 Affliction is a stormy deep, Where wave resounds to wave; Though o'er my head the billows roll, I know the Lord can save. 2 The hand that now withholds my joys Can reinstate my peace; And he who bade the tempest roar, Can bid that tempest cease. 3 In the dark watches of the night, I'll count his mercies o'er; I'll praise him for ten thousand past, And humbly sue for more. 4 When darkness and when sorrows rose And press'd on every side, The Lord has still sustain'd my steps, And still has been my guide. 5 Here will I rest, and build my hopes, Nor murmur at his rod; He's more than all the world to me, My health, my life, my God! Scripture: Psalm 42

In the floods of tribulation

Hymnal: Hymns, Selected and Original #684 (1828) Meter: Irregular Topics: Sweet Affliction—A Song in a Storm Lyrics: 1 In the floods of tribulation, While the billows o'er me roll, Jesus whispers consolation, And supports my fainting soul: Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Praise the Lord, 2 Thus the lion yields me honey, From the eater food is given, Strengthen'd thus, I still press forward, Singing as I wade to heaven,-- Sweet affliction, sweet affliction, And my sins are all forgiv'n. 3 Floods of tribulation heighten, Billows still around me roar, Those that know not Christ--ye frighten, But my soul defies your power; Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Praise the Lord, 4 In the sacred page recorded Thus his word securely stands; 'Fear not, I'm in trouble near thee, Naught shall pluck you from my hands:' Sweet affliction, sweet affliction Every word my love demands, 5 All I meet I find assist me In my path to heavenly joy, Where, though trials now attend me, Trials never more annoy: Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Praise the Lord, 6 Bless'd there with a weight of glory, Still the path I'll ne'er forget, But, exulting, cry, it led me To my blessed Saviour's seat-- Sweet affliction, sweet affliction, Which has brought to Jesus' feet.
