Hymn H54

Why pour'st thou forth thine anxious 'plaint,
Despairing of relief,
As if the Lord overlooked thy cause,
And did not heed thy grief?

Hast thou not known, hast thou not heard,
That firm remains on high,
The everlasting throne on Him,
Who formed the earth and sky?

Art thou afraid His powers shall fail
When comes thine evil day?
And that an allcreating arm
Shall weary or decay?

Supreme in wisdom as in power
The Rock of Ages stands;
Though Him thou canst not see, nor trace
The working of His Hands.
