Representative Text

1 Lord! in love and mercy save us,
For our trust is all in thee:
In that cleansing fountain lave us,
Which alone can make us free!

Through the long lone dismal night,
Grant that calmly, on thee resting,
We may wait for morning light.

3 Lord! we pray, and know thou hearest,
For thy promises are true:
Grant the heart-wish that is dearest;
He who knows can also do!
