Representative Text

1 Thou who knowest all my weakness,
Thou whose eye my heart can see;
In my hour of deepest trial,
Let my faith take hold on Thee.

Firm and fearless may I ever
Tread the path designed for me;
And tho’ thorns may sometimes pierce me,
Let my faith take hold on Thee.

2 Faith that smiles when skies are frowning,
Faith that mountains can remove,
Faith that purifies by suff’ring,
Calmly, sweetly works by love, [Refrain]

3 While I feel Thy presence with me,
While I feel Thy gracious hand,
Gladly will I do Thy bidding,
Only waiting Thy command. [Refrain]

4 Till the storms of life are over,
This my daily prayer shall be:
Lord, uphold me with Thy Spirit,
Let my faith abide in Thee. [Refrain]
