899. Lord, in our lonely hours

Author: Fred Pratt Green

Lord, in our lonely hours,
and when our spirit faints,
we are encouraged by your life,
and by your saints.

2. If we’ve no breath for praise,
no thoughts to frame a prayer,
we know you need no words of ours
to prompt your care.

3. If in excess of pain,
or grief, we stammer, Why?
It comforts us that on your cross
this was your cry.

4. Yet, in serenest faith,
transforming Calvary,
you trusted in the Father’s love-
and so must we.
