General (Vol. 3)

A New Start

  1. When I am weary,
    All human effort spent,
    And all straight prospects and ambitions bent,
    Thy saving love
    Uplifts my aching soul
    And with a word of comfort makes me whole.
  2. Even the good
    Must see their fortunes fail,
    Suffering the proud and cruel to prevail:
    But Thy good Grace
    Is past all human price
    Gained through a superhuman sacrifice.
  3. Weakly I weep
    For hopes so long pursued
    And for a broken life, awkward and crude,
    Then wipe my eyes
    And look into my heart
    To find my inner life, make a new start.
