Philip P. Bliss (1838–1876)


My fears arise, and clouds ob­scure the way;
With tear­ful eyes and ach­ing heart I pray:
Savior, re­lieve; Thy pre­sence brings re­lief;
Lord, I be­lieve; help Thou my un­be­lief.

By sin op­pressed, to Thy dear cross I flee;
I smite my breast; be mer­ci­ful to me;
Let me not grieve; Thou canst dis­pel my grief;
Lord, I be­lieve; help Thou my un­be­lief.
