Waves of care and trouble

Representative Text

1 Waves of care and trouble may my life assail,
They may crowd upon me, yet never shall prevail;
For I love my Saviour and trust in Him alone,
And keep the wires connected with the heav’nly throne.

Refrain:
Keep the wires connected and the pow’r will come,
Pray’r thro’ broken wires can never reach the throne;
Live for Christ and life will be a triumph song,
Keep the wires connected all the whole day long.

2 If my life is given o’er to Christ’s control,
And the heav’nly fire is burning in my soul;
All the wires connected and strong in faith and love,
Then God will send the power from His throne above. [Refrain]

3 Flowing like a river, I have peace and joy,
Petty cares and trials, cannot my soul annoy;
For I hear this message from God’s eternal throne,
“My grace shall be sufficient,” Thou shalt overcome. [Refrain]
