Our hearts are faint with sorrow,
Heavy and hard to bear,
But we will not despair;
And Thou wilt bid it cease.
ADELAIDE ANNE PROCTER
Yes! Thou art still the Life; Thou art the Way
The holiest know; Light, Life, and Way of heaven!
Church's sup- pli - ca- tion, Lord God Al - might - y.
A - men.
See round Thine Ark the hungry billows curling!
Thou canst preserve us.
Grant us Thy peace, Lord!
Peace, in our hearts, our evil thoughts assuaging,
Calm Thy foes raging!
Grant us Thy help till backward they are driven;
Tr. PHILIP PUSEY
Calm Me, My God
St. Elizabeth C. M. D.
EDWARD JOHN HOPKINS
1. Calm me, my God, and keep me calm, While these hot breez - es blow;
Soothe me with ho - ly hymn and psalm, And bid my spir - it
Calm me, my God, and keep me calm, Calm in the hour of buoyant health,
Calm in my hour of pain;
Calm in my poverty or wealth,
Calm in my loss or gain;
Which storms assail in vain,
Moving unruffled through earth's war Calm in the bustling street;
The eternal calm to gain! Amen.
