Representative Text

1 The Seer came back from paradise
To earth with its sorrow and pain;
There floated to him from refulgent skies
The words of this glad refrain:

Refrain:
“My grace is sufficient for thee;”
“My grace is sufficient for thee;”
For my strength is made perfect in weakness;
“My grace is sufficient for thee.”

2 Alone in the hush of the silent night,
Alone with my prayer and pain,
Came singing to me, with the morning light,
The peace of this sweet refrain: [Refrain]

3 Like thorns in the crown that the Saviour wore,
Come our “thorns in the flesh” again;
He whispers to each that message of yore,
The joy of this same refrain: [Refrain]
