A Hymn 💥


Eternal power of the earth and air,

Unseen, yet seen in all around,

Insignificant, but dwelling everywhere,

Though silent, heard in every sound.

If e’er thine ear in mercy bent

When wretched mortals cried to thee,

And if indeed thy Son was sent

To save lost sinners such as me.

Then hear me now, while kneeling here;

I lift to thee my heart and eye

And all my soul ascends in prayer;

O give me -­ give me Faith I cry.

Without some glimmering in my heart,

I could not raise this fervent prayer;

Nevertheless a stronger light impart,

And in Thy mercy fix it there!

While Faith is with me I am blest;

It turns my darkest night to day;

But while I clasp it to my breast I often feel it slide away.

Then cold and dark my spirit sinks,

To see my light of life depart,

And every fiend of Hell me thinks

Enjoys the anguish of my heart.

What shall I do if all my love,

My hopes, my toil, are cast away

And if there be no God above

To hear and bless me when I pray?

If this is vain delusion all,

If death be an eternal sleep,

And none can hear my secret call

Or see the silent tears I weep.

O help me God! for thou alone

Canst my distracted soul relieve;

Forsake it not it is thine own,

Though weak yet longing to believe.

O drive these cruel doubts away

And make me know that thou art God;

A Faith that shines by night and day Will lighten every earthly load.

If I believe that Jesus died

And waking rose to reign above,

Then surely Sorrow,

Sin and Pride Must yield to peace and hope and love.

And all the blessed words He said Will strength and holy joy impart,

A shield of safety o’er my head,

A spring of comfort in my heart.

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. 🫂
