James H. Burke (1855–1901)


Hear me, bless­èd Je­sus,
Bid all fear de­part;
Let Thy Spir­it whis­per
Peace with­in my heart.


Then, what­ev­er Thou send­est,
Happy I shall be,
Jesus, my Re­deem­er,
Looking un­to Thee.

Let me ful­ly trust Thee,
Resting on Thy Word;
Let me still with pa­tience
Wait on Thee, O Lord.


Hiding in the sha­dow
Of Thy shel­ter­ing wings,
I shall rest con­fid­ing
In the King of kings.
