In The Dark (Savior Comfort Me)

In the dark and mournful day, 

When earth’s riches flee away,

And the last hope will not stay—

Savior, comfort me!

When the secret idol’s gone 

That my poor heart yearned upon,

Desolate, bereft, alone— 

Savior, comfort me! 

In the hour of sad distress, 

Let me know you love no less,

Help me trust your faithfulness— 

Savior, comfort me! 

Savior, comfort me!

So it shall be good for me, 

Much afflicted now to be, 

If you will but tenderly— 

Savior, comfort me! 

Jesus, you were sorely tried, 

In the darkness crucified,

O what strength to be my guide! 

Savior, comfort me!

In the hour of sad distress, 

Let me know you love no less,

Help me trust your faithfulness— 

Savior, comfort me! 

Savior, comfort me!
