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

J. Kent            C.M.

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

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

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

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.
