Jesus, the Soul’s Help in Times of Trouble. Ps. 31. 7

J. Franklin    C.M.

In all my troubles and distress,
The Lord my soul does own;
Jehovah does my griefs redress,
And make his mercy known.

He helps me on him to rely;
He is my strength and tower;
’Tis he that hears me when I cry,
And manifests his power.

In every storm, in every sea,
My Jesus makes a way;
His light shall make the darkness flee,
And turn the shade to day.

’Tis he in trouble bears me up,
And leads me safely through;
My Jesus does maintain my cup,
And daily strength renew.
