Why Are You Cast Down, My Soul?

Why are you cast down, my soul, and why in such despair?
The heartaches God has granted you in no way can compare
To joys unknown to be revealed when faith gives way to sight
And Christ your Crown fills all your view and drives away your night.

My God, I choose to hope in You, the Helper of my soul.
I’ll praise Your grand and loving plan though billows o’er me roll.
I’ll worship You for all You do and in each test delight:
Each joy, each tear, each doubt, each fear—all in Your purpose bright.
