HOPE AND COMFORT
443
2   Should earth against my soul engage,
And hellish darts be hurled, Then I can smile at Satan's rage, And face a frowning world.
3   Let cares like a wild deluge come,
And storms of sorrow fall;
May I but safely reach my home, My God, my heaven, my all:
4 There shall I bathe my weary soul In seas of heavenly rest, And not a wave of trouble roll Across my peaceful breast.
Rev. Isaac Watts, 1707
444
2   We ask not, Father, for repose
Which comes from outward rest, If we may have through all life's woes Thy peace within our breast:
3  That peace which suffers and is strong,
Trusts where it cannot see, Deems not the trial-way too long, But leaves the end with Thee:
4   That peace which flows serene and deep,
A river in the soul, Whose banks a living verdure keep, God's sunshine o'er the whole.
5   O Father, give our hearts this peace,
Whate'er the outward be, Till all life's discipline shall cease, And we go home to Thee.
