My Saviour ! why should I complain, And why fear aught but sin ?
Distractions are but outward things ; Thy peace dwells far within.
These surface-troubles come and go,
Like rufflings of the sea; The deeper depth is out of reach
To all, my God, but Thee.
Why dost thou beat so quick, my heart ?
Why struggle in thy cage ? What shall I do for thee, poor heart!
Thy throbbing heat to swage ?
What spell is this come over thee, My soul! what sweet surprise ?
And wherefore these unbidden tears That start into mine eyes ?
How are my passions laid to sleep,
How easy penance seems, And how the bright world fades away
Oh are they all but dreams ?
