CGS No.: 

Verse 1
It is not meet for Saints to fear
Nor for them to despair,
For when they least expect His help;
The Saviour will appear.

Verse 2
When Abraham took up his knife
God's voice said to him, `stop`
The yonder ram caught by the horn
Shall substitute thy son.

Verse 3
When Jonah sank beneath the waves
No hope of escape near
God sent a fish that swallowed him
And brought him to the shore.

Verse 4
With such great might and love as this
Abounding in His word;
I pray to bring my anxious cares
And leave them all to Him.

Verse 5
Lift up your eyes and wait His help
It may be long but wait;
Though the promise may tarry long,
It soon shall come to pass.
