God will comfort you. — Anon.

1 In God let all his saints rejoice,
With thankful heart and cheerful voice;
Thus saith his word, so kind, so true—
I, even I, will comfort you.

2 Sweet words !— O let us bless his name,
And joyful all his praise proclaim;
These words shall foes and fears subdue —
I, even I, will comfort you.

3 Do sore afflictions on you lay,
And pungent sorrows day by day?

Look to this word, 'twill bear you through-
I, even I, will comfort you.

4 If death in gloomy form arlpear,
And overwhelm your souls with fear,
Let this sweet word your faith renew—
I, even I, will comfort you.

5 And when each happy soul attains
That blissful state where glory reigns,
This song shall all his ppwers employ-
God is my comfort and my joy.
