1 The tempter to my soul hath said,
There is no help in God for thee;
Lord! lift thou up thy servant's head;
My glory, shield, and solace be.

2 Thus to the Lord I raised my cry,
He heard me from his holy hill;
At his command the waves rolled by;
He beckoned--and the winds were still.

3 I laid me down, and slept--I woke--
Thou, Lord! my spirit didst sustain;
Bright from the east the morning broke--
Thy comforts rose on me again.

4 I will not fear, though armed throngs
Compass my steps in all their wrath;
Salvation to the Lord belongs;
His presence guards his people's path.
