Struggling Upward.
405

Father divine, our wants relieve

In this our evil day;

To all Thy tempted children give

The power to watch and pray.

Long as our fiery trials last,

Long as the cross we bear,

O, let our souls on Thee be cast,

In never-ceasing prayer!

Thy spirit of untroubled peace

Give us in faith to claim,

To wrestle till we see Thy face,

And know Thy hidden name.

Till Thou Thy perfect love impart,

Till Thou Thyself bestow,

Be this the cry of every heart,—

I will not let Thee go;

I will not let Thee go, unless

Thou tell Thy name to me;

With all Thy great salvation bless,

And make me all like Thee.

Then let us, on the mountain top,

Behold Thine unveiled face,

Where faith in sight is swallowed up,

And prayer in endless praise.
