Psalm 27:2 Second Part [Soon As I Heard My Father Say]
by [?]


Psalm 27:2. 8 9 13 14. Second Part
Prayer and Hope.

Soon as I heard my Father say,
“Ye children, seek my grace;”
My heart reply’d without delay,
“I’ll seek my Father’s face.”

Let not thy face be hid from me,
Nor frown my soul away;
God of my life, I fly to thee
In a distressing day.

Should friends and kindred near and dear
Leave me to want, or die,
My God would make my life his care
And all my need supply.

My fainting flesh had dy’d with grief,
Had not my soul believ’d
To see thy grace provide relief,
Nor was my hope deceiv’d.

Wait on the Lord, ye trembling saints,
And keep your courage up;
He’ll raise your spirit when it faints,
And far exceed your hope.
