Tune:  Have Thine own way, Lord, have Thine own way

"Why are you cast down, o my soul? ...  Hope  in God, for I shall yet praise
Him, the help of my countenance and my God!"  (Ps. 42:11, NKJV)

Are you "cast down", friend, quietly wait,
for you He cares with love true and great,
yes, wait on Him, for bright is your hope
shining on you through faith´s telescope!

Souls you have led to Christ by His grace,
make this old earth a merciful place,
to be the gospel´s "pipeline" and tool,
little it matters to be a fool!

Lo, from the East, so far, far away,
the Lord is pleased His grace to display,
my heart is moved to tears when I see
a Moslem man in Jesus set free!

When I see gospel news bearing fruit,
I do not want to be sad and  mute,
giving what you from God have received  (1 Cor. 15:3)
is more than vain success has achieved!

So when you happen to be cast down,
and when your circumstances may frown,
this may be part of His terms for you
making His gospel grip you anew!

With grace your countenance soon may shine,
as you drink in the Spirit´s new wine
for sadness He now makes you rejoice,
full of His freshness is now your voice!
