“With my soul have I desired thee in the night.” Isa. 26. 9

J. Kent            C.M.

1
’Twas in the night, when troubles came,
I sought, my God, for thee,
But found no refuge in that name
That once supported me.

2
I sought thee, but I found thee not,
For all was dark within;
Thy tender mercy I forgot
To me when dead in sin.

3
With cords of his eternal love,
’Twas thus my soul he drew,
And taught my wretched heart to prove
His oath and promise true.

4
At length my Sun’s refulgent beam
Through the dark cloud appeared;
My night of woe was like a dream;
My soul was blessed and cheered.
