Full Text

1 Why should a living man complain
Of deep distress within,
Since every sigh, and every pain,
Is but the fruit of sin?

2 No, Lord, I'll patiently submit,
Nor ever dare rebel;
Yet sure I may, here at thy feet,
My painful feelings tell.

3 Thou seest what floods of sorrow rise,
And beat upon my soul;
One trouble to another cries,
Billows on billows roll,

4 From fear to hope, and hope to fear,
My shipwreck'd soul is tost;
Till I am tempted, in despair,
To give up all for lost.

5 Yet through the stormy clouds I'll look,
Once more to thee, my God:
O fix my soul upon a rock,
Beyond the gaping flood.

6 One look of mercy from thy face
Will set my heart at ease;
One all-commanding word of grace,
Will make the tempest cease.

In this latter pastorate the son succeeded the father in 1758. He died in 1795. Dr. Stennett was the author of several doctrinal works, and a few hymns. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872.… Go to person page >
