1 O my soul, why art thou troubled,
When so dear a friend is thine?
Unto him without a murmur
Wilt thou not thy all resign?

Think how great his loving kindness,
Blessings past with joy recall;
Though thy life may have its trials,
He thy Lord hath borne them all.

2 Cling to him, thy only refuge
From the stormy winds that blow;
Cling to him whose hand hath led thee
By a way thou did’st not know. [Refrain]

3 Peace he leaves, his peace he gives thee,
He who said, be not afraid;
Bids thee now fulfil thy mission,
In his robe of strength arrayed. [Refrain]

4 Lift thine eyes, there’s light before thee!
Haste to catch its early rays;
Let thy harp awake the morning
With a song of grateful praise. [Refrain]
