And gracious to the meek;
He saved me when I cried to Him,

4 Return unto thy rest, my soul,
No longer troubled be;
The Lord sustains thee, and has dealt
Most graciously with thee.

5 Before my Saviour I will live,
From death He saved my soul,
My eyes from tears, my feet from falls,
And He has made me whole.

6 In my affliction this I found,
That human help deceived,
But ever faithful was the Lord
In Whom my soul believed.
