Representative Text

I KNEEL beside thy sacred cross,
And count for thee my life as dross;
O satisfy my soul this hour
With thy dear love, my healing power.

Refrain:
Thou art enough for me,
Thou art enough for me;
O precious, living, loving Lord,
Yes, thou art enough for me!

2 My helpless soul, rest thou in God
And lean upon his faithful word,
So in my heart, Lord, thou shalt find
That I am to thy will resigned.

3 At times ‘tis hard for flesh and blood
To say: Thy will be done, my God;
But if my grief means others’ gain,
O what to me are loss and pain!

4 Through every fear my soul doth climb
Above the things of passing time,
And to my eyes the sight is given
Which makes my earth a present Heaven.
