I was sick, and ye visited me.
Matt. 25:36.

’Tis not a lonely night watch

Which by the couch I spend:

Jesus is close beside us,

Our Saviour and our Friend.

2 Often I strive all vainly,

To ease the aching head,

Then, silently and gently,

Himself he makes thy bed.

3 Do we not hear him saying,

“Your guilt on me was laid,”

“Ye are my blood-bought jewels;”

“Fear not, be not dismayed.”

4 “I sit beside the furnace,”

“The gold will soon be pure,”

“And blesséd are those servants

Who to the end endure.”

5 Amen! O blessed Saviour,

Dwell with us, in us, here,

And let us welcome trials,

Till we thine image bear.
