All our weakness Thou dost know; Thou didst tread the earth before us,
Thou didst feel its keenest woe; Lone and dreary, faint and weary,
Through the desert Thou didst go. 3 Spirit of our God, descending,
Fill our hearts with heavenly joy;
Pleasures that can never cloy:

While held in life's uneven way.

From wrath we fain would flee, Lord, cancel our unrighteousness,
And set the captives free. 3 When harassed by ten thousand foes
Our helplessness we feel;

And threaten or allure By storm or calm,--in Thee be found
A refuge strong and sure. 5 As age advances, may we grow
