William Cowper, 1779, from Olney Hymns, vol. 1, hymn 6
The saints should never be dismayed,|
Nor sink in hopeless fear;
For when they least expect his aid,
The Saviour will appear.
2. This Abraham found, he raised the knife,
3. Once David seemed Saul's certain prey,
4. When Jonah sunk beneath the wave|
He thought to rise no more;
But God prepared a fish to save,
And bear him to the shore.
5. Blest proofs of pow'r and grace divine,
6. Wait for his seasonable aid,
