“Blessed are they that have not seen, 
and yet have believe" - John 20:29

1.  BE GONE unbelief, My Saviour is near

     And for my relief will surely appear

     By pray’r let me wrestle and He will perform 

     With Christ in the vessel I smile at the storm.

2.  Though dark be my way since He is my Guide 

     ‘Tis mine to obey ‘Tis His to provide
     Though cisterns be broken and creatures all fail 

     The word He hath spoken shall surely prevail.

3.  His love, in time past forbade me to think 

     He‘ll leave me at least in trouble to sink

     Each sweet Ebenezer I have in review 

     Confirms His good pleasure to help me 

     quite through.

4.  Why should I complain of want or distress 

     Temptation or pain? He told me no less

     The heirs of salvation I know from His Word 

     Through much tribulation must follow their Lord.

5.  How bitter that cup no heart can conceive 

     Which He drank quite up, that sinners might live! 

     His way was much rougher and darker than mine 

     Did Christ, my Lord, suffer and shall l repine?

6.  Since all that I meet shall work for my good 

     The bitter is sweet the medicine, food 

     Though painful at present T’will cease 

     before long

      And then‐oh, how pleasant The conqueror’s 

     song!.   Amen
