“Believe only.” Luke. 8. 50; John. 6. 29

J. Hart         7.5.

1
Zeal extinguished to a spark;
 Life is very, very low;
 All my evidences dark,
 And good works I’ve none to show.
 Prayer, too, seems a load;
 Ordinances tease or tire;
 I can feel no love to God;
 Hardly have a good desire.

2
Though thy fainting spirits droop,
 Yet thy God is with thee still.
 To believe in hope ’gainst hope,
 And against thee all things feel;
 Only to believe,
 ’Midst thy coldness, doubts, and death,
 Canst thou not, poor soul, perceive
 This is now thy work of faith?
