1 When gloomy thoughts and fears
The trembling heart invade,
And all the face of nature wears
A universal shade;
2 Religion can assuage
The tempest of the soul;
And ev'ry fear shall lose its rage
At her divine control.
3 Through life's bewilder'd way,
Her hand unerring leads;
And o'er the path her heavenly ray
A cheering lustre sheds.
4 When reason, tired and blind,
Sinks helpless and afraid,
Thou blest supporter of the mind,
How powerful is thine aid!
5 Oh, let me feel thy power,
And find thy sweet relief,
To brighten ev'ry gloomy hour,
And soften ev'ry grief.
