1 "How long will ye despise My name?"
’Tis thus the God of mercy pleads;
:And turn My glory into shame,
And triumph in your evil deeds?"
2 "Search out your heart, and mend your ways,
That you may dwell with Me above;
Obedient faith, and thankful praise,
Such is the sacrifice I love."
3 O Lord, while others in despair
Cry, "Where is comfort to be found?"
I know that Thou wilt hear my prayer,
And let my soul with peace be crowned.
4 Thy blessings are of lasting worth,
Through endless years Thy goodness flows;
Vain are the riches of the earth
Compared with what Thy hand bestows.
5 I will lie down, and calmly sleep,
For on Thy succor I depend;
My soul in safety Thou wilt keep,
And be my never failing friend.
