Cheer Thee, Sad Soul

God is near thee, Therefore cheer thee

Published in 20 hymnals

Representative Text

1 God is near thee,
Therefore cheer thee,
Sad soul, sad soul;
He'll defend thee,
When around thee
Billows roll, billows roll.

2 Calm thy sadness,
Look in gladness,
On high, on high;
Faint and weary
Pilgrim cheer thee,
Help is nigh, help is nigh.

3 Mark the seabird
Wildly wheeling,
Thro' skies, thro' skies;
God defends him,
God attends him
When he cries, when he cries.

4 Therefore cheer thee,
God is near thee,
Sad soul, sad soul;
In thy blindness,
Trust his kindness,
When storms roll o'er thy soul.
