“If the Lord were pleased to kill us.” Judg. 13. 23

Dobell’s Selection                 L.M.

1
Why should I yield to slavish fears?
God is the same to endless years;
Though clouds and darkness hide his face,
He’s boundless both in truth and grace.

2
Would e’er the God of truth make known
The worth and glory of his Son;
His love and righteousness display,
And cast my soul at last away?

3
Would he reveal my sin and woe,
Teach me my numerous wants to know,
And help me in my darkest frame
To build my hopes on Jesus’ name;

4
Would God preserve my soul from hell,
And make his love at times prevail,
Would he bestow such mercies past,
And yet reject my soul at last?

5
Though unbelief may long molest,
And sin and Satan break my rest,
Grace shall at last the victory get,
And make my conquest quite complete.
