Why Should Cross and Trial Grieve Me?

  1. Why should cross and trial grieve me?
    Christ is near with his cheer;
    never will he leave me.
    Who can rob me of the heaven
    that God’s Son for my own
    to my faith hath given?
  2. God oft gives me days of gladness;
    shall I grieve if he give
    seasons, too, of sadness?
    God is good and tempers ever
    all my ill, and he will
    wholly leave me never.
  3. Death cannot destroy forever;
    from our fears, cares, and tears
    it will us deliver.
    It will close life’s mournful story;
    make a way that we may
    enter heav’nly glory.
  4. Lord, my Shepherd, take me to thee.
    Thou art mine; I was thine,
    even ere I knew thee.
    I am thine, for thou hast bought me;
    lost I stood, but thy blood
    free salvation brought me.
  5. Thou art mine; I love and own thee.
    Light of joy, ne’er shall I
    from my heart dethrone thee.
    Savior, let me soon behold thee
    face to face; may thy grace
    evermore enfold me.
