Lord, I believe; help Thou mine unbelief. Mark 9:24
Words: John R. Wreford, in Collection of Hymns for Public and Private Worship, by John Relly Beard (London: John Green, 1837).
If you know where to get a good picture of Wreford (head-and-shoulders, at least 200×300 pixels), would you ?
Lord, I believe; Thy power I own,
Thy Word I would obey;
I wander comfortless and lone
When from Thy truth I stray.
Lord, I believe; but gloomy fears
Sometimes bedim my sight;
I look to Thee with prayers and tears,
And cry for strength and light.
Lord, I believe; but Thou dost know
My faith is cold and weak;
Pity my frailty, and bestow
The confidence I seek.
Yes, I believe; and only Thou
Canst give my soul relief;
Lord, to Thy truth my spirit bow;
Help Thou mine unbelief.
