Representative Text

1 In accents of tenderness speaketh a voice,
Trust thou in me, trust thou in me;
When burdened by sorrow, when tempted and tried,
Ever thy helper I’ll be.

Refrain:
Oh, trust, Oh, trust,
I’ll help thee, and strengthen and comfort thee;
When burdened by sorrow, when tempted and tried,
Ever thy helper I’ll be.

2 When borne on the waves of life’s turbulent tide,
Thou need’st not fear, ever I’m near;
Across the wild billows I’ll come unto thee,
Seeking thy spirit to cheer. [Refrain]

3 If over thy soul clouds of doubt shall arise,
Bringing dismay, hiding the day,
Before the glad light of thy Lord’s loving smile,
Darkness shall vanish away. [Refrain]
