Representative Text

1 Disturb’d by care, by burdens press’d,
By thronging tasks thou art distressed?
O saddened heart, thou needs not sigh,
Christ’s love can satisfy!

O trust His love, tho’ dark thy ways,
And He will fill thy heart with praise;
O sing in faith, as days go by,
Christ’s love can satisfy!

2 No earthly pelf, but bitter loss?
Count it but gain; see Calv’ry’s cross!
In heaven fair thy treasures lie,
Christ’s love can satisfy! [Refrain]

3 No fame is thine, no plaudits rare?
But still for thee thy God doth care,
It was for thee His Son did die,
Christ’s love can satisfy! [Refrain]
