We Are Not Alone (#314)
WE ARE NOT ALONE
How good it is to realize that God will undertake
For all who, burdened, cry to Him, “Help me for Jesus’ sake.”
For through His Son He has for all not only sin’s release,
But grace for every trial of life. He keeps the soul in peace.
Sometimes when we implore the Lord to meet some special need,
It seems as if His ear is deaf, no matter how we plead.
But up above the leaden skies, He watches o’er His own;
He sees our tear-drops, hears our cry. No, we are not alone!
For every trial, care, and cross, He giveth us more grace,
And every storm-sky has its rift that shows His loving face.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous, it is true,
But He delivers, bless His name. He sees His children through.
