1 In my weakness, dearest Saviour,
Help me fully to rely
On thy good and faithful promise,
Guide me with thine eye.

Help me, O my blessed Saviour,
Let thy Spirit seal my own,
Till in heavenly perfection,
I shall know as I am known.

2 Oft the burdens seem too heavy,
And the cause I cannot see;
Then I long to drop the burdens,
And from sorrow flee. [Refrain]

3 When the way looks dark before me,
And I seem to walk alone,
Hear me say, ‘mid darkest shadows,
“Let thy will be done.” [Refrain]
