Published in 8 hymnals

Representative Text

1 I want a present living faith,
That I may prove each day, each hour,
Amid the toils and cares of life,
My precious Savior's love and power;
I want, amid the petty cares
That daily weary and annoy,
To live by faith so near my God
That life shall be a constant joy (constant joy).

2 I want a firm, unwavering faith,
That bringeth good from seeming ill;
That, e'en amid affliction's blast,
Rejoices in the Father's will,
That when long-cherished hope's denied,
Still sings a "glad triumphant song."
Knowing that he who reigns on high
A God of love can do no wrong, (do no wrong).

3 I want a faith that falters not,
Let skies be bright or tempest beat,
That 'mid earth's joys and cares and griefs
Victorious sits at Jesus, feet;
Give me such faith, and then I know
When I shall pass cold Jordan's wave,
The faith that kept me day by day
Will be triumphant o'er the grave, (o'er the grave).
