O ask, O Lord, that mine may be
A faith so strong, so firm in thee,
That thro' the deepest, darkest night,
My soul shall triumph in its light.
I ask a faith that works by love,
That neither time nor death can move;
A faith that views, with radiant eyes,
Where heav'n's eternal region lies.
I ask a faith obedient still,
Content to suffer if thy will;
A faith that in the furnace flame
Can shout for joy my Saviour's name.
I ask a faith that undismayed
Will lead me thro' the vale and shade;
Till, wafted o'er the narrow sea,
I enter life, and dwell with thee.
Give me this faith, O Saviour mine,
That I may trust each word of thine;
A faith that must and will prevail,
Because thy word can never fail.
