Yes Lord O Breathe The Answer Soft And L

“Yes, Lord,” O breathe the answer soft and low,
The one unchanging answer Love can know:
“Amen! Thy will be done on earth below!”
Alleluia! Alleluia!

“Yes,” if across our path the shadows fall;
“Yes, blessed Master,” tho’ Thy clarion call
Bids us to follow Thee, forsaking all;
Alleluia! Alleluia!

“Yes,” when the Spirit’s prompting voice is heard;
“Yes,” to each ancient promise of the Word;
“Yes, though fulfilment seemeth long-deferred-
Alleluia! Alleluia!

“Yes,” though a thousand bid us answer “No;”
Faith cleaves a passage through the ambushed foe;
“We rest on Thee, and in Thy Name we go,”-
Alleluia! Alleluia!
