Representative Text

1 O’er my heart like music stealing,
Lo, the precious words I hear;
Trust and wait, in faith believing,
Thy Redeemer still is near.

Refrain:
Courage, then, O fainting spirit,
Courage, then, thro’ ev’ry care;
There’s a balm that will not fail thee
At the blessed gate of pray’r.

2 I will seek that balm of comfort
That so oft has stay’d my tears;
I will trust and wait with patience,
Till the promised light appears. [Refrain]

3 Thou, my Saviour, art my refuge;
Changeless as Thy throne above
Is the promise of Thy presence,
And Thy everlasting love. [Refrain]
