Full Text

1 Troubled heart, thy fear dispel;
He who loves and loves thee well,
Though thy star of faith is dim,
Kindly bids thee lean on him.

Lean on him, lean on him,
Though the light of faith is dim;
Whatsoe’er thy trials be,
Lean on him who cares for thee.

2 Troubled heart, oh, why dismayed?
Let thy hope on God be stayed;
Go to him whose name is love;
Prayer will ev’ry cloud remove. [Refrain]

3 Troubled heart, despond no more,
He who once thy sorrow bore,
He who wept on earth for thee,
Ev’ry tear of thine can see. [Refrain]

4 Troubled heart, be still, be still,
Learn to know thy Saviour’s will;
He thy dearest friend will be,
Lean on him who died for thee. [Refrain]
