Representative Text

1 “Let not your heart be troubled,”
I hear my Saviour say,
When weary with the burdens
And trials of the day;
So leaning on His promise,
That near me He will be,
The things that fret and worry
Seem beautiful to me.

2 “Let not your heart be troubled,”
The Saviour’s tender voice
Speaks when I feel discouraged,
And bids my soul rejoice;
So patiently I’m striving
To live just day by day,
The love that never faileth,
With sunshine floods the way.

3 I’m trusting in His goodness,
Tho’ shadows round me fall,
I’ll do my little duties,
He gives me strength for all;
I must not disappoint Him,
But ever faithful be;
A mansion bright in glory,
He hath prepared for me.

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
