My grace is sufficient for thee, 2 Cor. 12:9.

Kind are the words that Jesus speaks
To cheer the drooping saint:
"My grace sufficient is for you,
Though nature's powers may faint.

"My grace its glories shall display,
And make your griefs remove;
Your weakness shall the triumphs tell
Of boundless power and love."

What though my griefs are not removed,
Yet why should I despair?
While my kind Savior's arms support,
I can the burden bear.

Jesus, my Savior and my Lord,
'Tis good to trust Thy name:
Thy power, Thy faithfulness and love
Will ever be the same.

Weak as I am, yet through Thy grace
I all things can perform ;
And smiling triumph in Thy name,
Amid the raging storm.
