 My God at times seems far away,          
where is His smiling face?
That makes me sink in deep dismay,
in vain I plead for grace!

These are the times where indwelt sin
may fill me with despair,
the prince of darkness seems to win,
so witness I don´t dare!

This is the hour, though, when I
may lift to Him my eye
and utter helpless words of sigh,
while in the dust I lie!

There I drink in His word anew,
for thirsty is my soul,
as once to Christ my heart it drew,
again it made me whole!

Yes, "whole", but in that gospel sense
where Jesus made me free
by Calvary´s redemption whence
I have my joy and glee!

When you and I feel up and down
just wait a little while,
behind what seems to be a frown,
He hides His gracious smile!
