622. C. M. Watts. Confidence in God.
1 Soon as I heard my Father say,
|Ye children, seek my grace,|
My heart replied without delay,
|I'll seek my Father's face.|
2 Let not thy face be hid from me,
Nor frown my soul away;
God of my life, I fly to thee
In each distressing day.
3 Should friends and kindred, near and dear,
Leave me to want, or die,
My God will make my life his care,
And all my need supply.
4 Wait on the Lord, ye trembling saints
And keep your courage up;
He'll raise your spirit when it faints,
And far exceed your hope.
