Jesus, who knows full well

Full Text

1 Jesus, who knows full well
The heart of every saint,
Invites us all our griefs to tell,
To pray and never faint.

2 He bows his gracious ear,
We never plead in vain;
Then let us wait till he appears,
And pray, and pray again.

3 Though unbelief suggest,
Why should we longer wait?
He bids us never give him rest,
But knock at mercy's gate.

4 Jesus the Lord will hear
His chosen when they cry;
Yes, though he may a while forbear,
He'll help them from on high.

5 His nature, truth and love,
Engage him on their side;
When they are grieved, his bowels move,
They will not be denied.

6 Then let us earnest cry,
And never faint in prayer,
He sees, he hears, and from on high,
Will make our cause his own.

His life at sea teems with wonderful escapes, vivid dreams, and sailor recklessness. He grew into an abandoned and godless sailor.
