6 Soon as I heard my father say,
"Ye children, seek my grace,"
My heart reply'd without delay,
"I’ll seek my Father’s face."
7 Let not thy face be hid from me,
Nor frown my soul away;
God of my life, I fly to thee
In a distressing day.
8 Should friends and kindred near and dear
Leave me to want or die,
My God would make my life his care,
And all my need supply.
9 My fainting flesh had dy'd with grief,
Had not my soul believ'd,
To see thy grace provide relief;
Nor was my hope deceiv'd.
10 Wait on the Lord, ye trembling saints,
And keep your courage up;
He’ll raise your spirit when it faints,
And far exceed your hope.
