Edmund S. Lorenz (1854–1942)


When days are dark and cares oppress,
When trials sore my soul distress,
I have a comfort, full and sure,
God’s blessèd Word, whose truths endure.


’Tis a light for­ev­er guiding
Those who walk in it confiding,
In its promises abiding,
And ’tis shining, shining, shining all the way!

I find within its promise sweet
Strength for my heart, light to my feet;
My help and comfort, day by day,
I find within the Book alway.


O blessèd Book! how cheering are
The glimpses of the land afar,
Where saints, eter­nal glo­ry won,
Claim Hea­ven’s crown when earth is done.


O blessèd Book, my hope, my stay,
To that fair land point out the way;
Where I, blood-washed and saved by grace,
Beyond the Book behold His face.
