1 Cast on the fidelity
Of my redeeming Lord,
I shall his salvation see,
According to his word:
Credence to his word I give,
My Saviour, in distresses past
Will not now his servant leave,
But bring me through at last.

2 Better than my boding fears
To me thou oft hast prov'd;
Oft observ'd my silent tears,
And challeng'd thy belov'd:
Mercy to my rescue flew,
And death ungrasp'd his fainting prey:
Pain before thy face withdrew,
And sorrow fled away.

3 Now as yesterday the same,
In all my troubles nigh,
Jesus on thy word and name
I stedfastly rely:
Sure as now the grief I feel,
The promis'd joy I soon shall have:
Sav'd again to sinners tell
Thy power and will to save.

4 To thy blessed will resign'd,
And staid on that alone
I thy perfect strength shall find
Thy faithful mercies own;
Compass'd round with songs of praise,
My all to my Redeemer give;
Spread thy miracles of grace,
And for thy glory live.
