Representative Text

1 My soul in trouble roamed
Upon a weary plain,
And ever restless, longed
A perfect bliss to gain.

I have found it, Lord, in Thee
An everlasting store
Of comfort, joy, and bliss to me:
How can I wish for more?

2 Oppressed with guilt and woe,
With fears of hell o’ercast,
My soul no comfort knew
Until I came to Christ. [Refrain]

3 I bore within my breast
A deep and painful void,
I wanted inward rest,
And peace that would abide. [Refrain]

4 My foolish soul had thought
To fill itself with mold
From earthly mines, yet bought
No true and lasting gold. [Refrain]

5 All in this world is dross;
Its pleasures soon decay;
Its honors prove a snare;
Its treasures fly away. [Refrain]
