1 O my soul, what means this sadness?
Wherefore art thou thus cast down?
Let thy griefs be turned to gladness,
Bid thy restless fears be gone;
Look to Jesus,
Look to Jesus,
And rejoice in His dear Name.

2 What though Satan's strong temptations
Vex and grieve thee day by day?
And thy sinful inclinations
Often fill thee with dismay?
Thou shalt conquer,
Thou shalt conquer,
Through the Lamb's redeeming blood.

3 Though ten thousand ills beset thee,
From without and from within,
Jesus saith He'll ne'er forget thee,
But will save from hell and sin:
He is faithful,
He is faithful,
To perform His gracious Word.

4 Though distresses now attend thee,
And Thou tread'st the thorny road,
His right hand shall still defend thee;
Soon He'll bring thee home to God!
Therefore praise Him,
Therefore praise Him,
Praise thy great Redeemer's Name.
