	1. Jesus, whelmed in fears unknown,
	With our evil left alone,
	While no light from heaven is shown:
	Hear us, holy Jesus.

	2. When we vainly seem to pray
	And our hope seems far away,
	In the darkness be our Stay:
	Hear us, holy Jesus.
	3. Though no Father seem to hear,
	Though no light our spirits cheer,
	May we know that God is near:
	Hear us, holy Jesus.
