     20 Wherefore is light given to him that is in misery, and life unto the bitter in soul; 21 Which long for death, but it cometh not; and dig for it more than for hid treasures; 22 Which rejoice exceedingly, and are glad, when they can find the grave? 23 Why is light given to a man whose way is hid, and whom God hath hedged in? 24 For my sighing cometh before I eat, and my roarings are poured out like the waters. 25 For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me. 26 I was not in safety, neither had I rest, neither was I quiet; yet trouble came.(KJV)

1. In God, my faithful God, 
I trust when dark my road; 
Though many woes o’ertake me, 
Yet He will not forsake me. 
His love it is doth send them 
And, when ’tis best, will end them. 

2. My sins assail me sore, 
But I despair no more. 
I build on Christ, who loves me; 
From this Rock nothing moves me. 
To Him I all surrender, 
To Him, my soul’s Defender. 

3. If death my portion be, 
Then death is gain to me 
And Christ my Life forever, 
From whom death cannot sever. 
Come when it may, He’ll shield me, 
To Him I wholly yield me. 

4. O Jesus Christ, my Lord, 
So meek in deed and word, 
Thou once didst die to save us 
Because Thy love would have us 
Be heirs of heavenly gladness 
When ends this life of sadness. 

5. “So be it,” then, I say 
With all my heart each day. 
We, too, dear Lord, adore Thee. 
We sing for joy before Thee. 
Guide us while here we wander 
Until we praise Thee yonder.
