Wait My Soul Upon The Lord


Wait, my soul, upon the Lord,
To His gracious promise flee,
Laying hold upon His word:
“As thy days thy strength shall be.”

If the sorrows of thy case
Seem peculiar still to thee,
God has promised needful grace:
“As thy days thy strength shall be.”

Days of trial, days of grief,
In succession thou mayst see;
This is still thy sweet relief:
“As thy days thy strength shall be.”

Rock of Ages, I’m secure,
With Thy promise, full and free,
Faithful, positive, and sure;
“As thy days thy strength shall be.”

Amen.
