I am often so weary of sorrow,
So weary of struggling with sin,
So timid concerning the morrow,
So faithless of entering in.
To the beautiful rest that remaineth
Secure in the City of GOD,
Where shall enter no evil that staineth,
Nor ever the spoiler hath trod.
But aye, when the struggle is sorest,
And dark the clouds grow o’er my soul,
Dear Lord, the sweet cup that Thou pourest
Hath blam, and I drink and am whole.
From the quenchless old well of salvation
I quaff the pure waters divine,
And a sense of triumphant elation
Is thrilled through this spirit of mine.
No hand but Thine own, blessed Master,
Could comfort and cheer in the day
When the touch of a sudden disaster
Hath cumbered and tangled the way.
No look but Thine own could illumine
When night gathers black o’er the land,
And strength that is failing and human
Lieth prone on the desolate strand.
But ever Thy help is the nearest
When help from the earth there is none,
And ever the word that is dearest
Is the word of the Crucified Son;
And aye, when the tempest-clouds gather,
I fly for sweet shelter and peace
Through the Son to the heart of the Father,
Then terror and tremor do cease.
He restoreth my soul, and I praise Him
Whose love is my chrism and crown;
He restoreth my soul; let me raise Him
A song that His favor will own;
For often so weary of sorrow,
So weary of fighting with sin,
I look and I long for the morrow
When the ransom’d their freedom shall win.
Here is a beautiful song titled “Psalm 23, The Lord is My Shepherd”
May you find peace … at least for a moment in this life of fiery testing and refining of character.
As one battles to develop a RIGHTEOUS character like our Master Jesus had and has, let us TRUST in GOD YAHWEH through JESUS our Redeemer, that GOD will help us when we look to HIM and ask Him for HELP as did our Master Jesus – who “offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared”. – Hebrews 5:7
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” – Philippians 4:6
“Seek the LORD and His strength; Seek His face continually.” – Psalm 105:4
