Hymn: TLH 183: Jesus, Whelmed in Fears Unknown

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


1. Jesus, whelmed in fears unknown, 
With our evil left alone, 
While no light from heaven is shown: 
Hear us, holy Jesus. 

2. When we vainly seem to pray 
And our hope seems far away, 
In the darkness be our Stay: 
Hear us, holy Jesus. 

3. Though no Father seem to hear, 
Though no light our spirits cheer, 
May we know that God is near: 
Hear us, holy Jesus.
