Lost in the Wilderness

Representative Text

1 Lost in the wilderness,
Far, far from home,
Filled with a deep distress,
Long did I roam;
There in a barren land,
Dangers on ev'ry hand,
'Neath my feet sinking sand,
So far from home,
'Neath my feet sinking sand,
So far from home.

2 Darkness, O dense and deep,
Settled o'er all,
Storm-clouds above did sweep,
Thunders appall;
Then unto heav'n I cried:
"O God forgive my pride,
Come and my footsteps guide,
O hear my call,
Come and my footsteps guide,
O hear my call."

3 Down from the courts above
Came He in pow'r,
Flooding my heart with love
That very hour;
Safely He sheltered me,
Bade me of good cheer be,
Now I am safe and free,
Saved evermore,
Now I am safe and free,
Saved evermore.
