O for a faith that will not shrink

O, for a faith that will not shrink,
though pressed by every foe,
that will not tremble on the brink
of any earthly woe!

That will not murmur nor complain
beneath the chastening rod,
but, in the hour of grief or pain,
will lean upon its God.

A faith that shines more bright and clear
when tempests rage without;
that when in danger knows no fear,
in darkness feels no doubt.

A faith that keeps the narrow way
till life's last hour is fled,
and with a pure and heavenly ray
lights up a dying bed.

Lord, give me such a faith as this,
and then, whate'er may come,
I'll taste, e'en here, the hallowed bliss
of an eternal home.
