1. As deer desire cool springs, O living God, I long For You to intervene; Turn sorrow into song. My soul, why drown in hopelessness? Trust in your Savior’s promises. Soon you will praise His faithfulness.
2. Your tests, like crashing waves, Throw me against the Rock. Yet, doubts assail my faith; I question, “Where is God?” My soul, why drown in hopelessness? Trust in your Savior’s promises. Soon you will praise His faithfulness.
3. O Refuge and Delight, Defend me from my foes. Shine truth into this night, And lead me safely home. My soul, why drown in hopelessness? Trust in your Savior’s promises. Soon you will praise His faithfulness.
4. My soul, heed Christ’s command: “Take heart within the strife. Believe in Me– I am The way, the truth, the life. Though tribulations will increase, So will My comfort, joy, and peace, Until I make all trials cease.”
