106. Chastened Submission



1. What wait I for but Thee?
My hope is in Thy Name;
From all my sins deliver me,
Nor put my soul to shame. 

2. I suffered silently,
Because Thy will is best;
Remove Thy heavy stroke from me,
For I am sore distressed. 

3. When sin Thou dost repay
And chasten and restrain,
Man's beauty quickly fades away;
Yea, human life is vain. 

4. O Lord, regard my fears,
And answer my request;
Turn not in silence from my tears,
But give the mourner rest. 

5. I am a stranger here,
Dependent on Thy grace,
A pilgrim, as my fathers were,
With no abiding place. 

6. O spare me and restore
My failing strength, I pray;
Ere I go hence and be no more,
The hand of judgment stay.
