374 (C.M.) John Needham

Kind are the words that Jesus speaks,

To cheer the drooping saint;

"My grace sufficient is for you,

Though nature's pow'rs may faint.

"My grace its glories shall display,

And make your griefs remove;

Your weakness shall the triumph tell

Of boundless pow'r and love."

What though my griefs are not removed,

Yet why should I despair?

While my kind Saviour's arms support,

I can the burden bear.

Jesus, my Saviour and my Lord!

'Tis good to trust Thy name:

Thy pow'r, Thy faithfulness and love,

Will ever be the same.

Weak as I am, yet through Thy grace

I all things can perform;

And, smiling, triumph in Thy name

Amidst the raging storm.
