Suffer and languish,
Tremble in anguish
Must every soul that awakes to its guilt.
Sternly from yonder,
Sinai doth thunder:
Die or achieve what no sinner fulfilled.
Tremble with gladness,
Smile through their sadness
Shall all that rest in the arms of the Lord.
Grace beyond measure,
Comfort and treasure
Gathers the heart from His merciful word.
Bravely to suffer,
Gladly to offer
Praises to God ’neath the weight of our cross,
This will the Spirit
Help us to merit
Granting a breath from God’s heaven to us.
