1. In the hours of pain and sorrow,
When the world brings no relief,
When the eye is dim and heavy,
And the heart oppressed with grief;
While blessings flee, Savior Lord we trust in thee,
Savior Lord we trust in thee!
2. When the snares of death surround us:
Pride, ambition, love of ease,
Money with its false allurements,
Words that flatter, smiles that please;
Then ere we yield, Savior Lord be thou our shield,
Savior Lord be thou our shield.
3. Thou the hated and forsaken,
Thou the bearer of the cross,
Crowned of thorns and mocked and smitten,
Counting earthly gain but loss:
When scorned are we, we joy to be like thee,
We joy to be more like thee!
4. Thou the Father’s best beloved,
Thou the throned and sceptered King;
Who but thee should we adoring,
All our prayers and praises bring?
So blessed are we, Savior Lord in loving thee,
Savior Lord in loving thee, Savior Lord in loving thee.
