1 Long hast thou wept and sorrowed,
Poor mourner, dry thy tears;
Behold, with light and comfort,
The Lord Himself appears.
2 "Trust in My mercy ever,
My people!" saith the Lord.
Hold fast, in deepest sorrow,
That soul-sustaining Word.
3 Then rest, sad heart, in patience,
With this petition still,
"Lord, all these vacant places
With Thine own fullness fill!"
