Begone, unbelief

Begone, unbelief,
  My Savior is near,
And for my relief
  Will surely appear;
By prayer let me wrestle,
  And He will perform;
With Christ in the vessel,
  I smile at the storm.
Though dark be my way,
  Since He is my Guide,
’Tis mine to obey,
  ’Tis His to provide;
Though cisterns be broken,
  And creatures all fail,
The word He hath spoken
  Shall surely prevail.
His love, in time past,
  Forbids me to think
He’ll leave me at last
  In trouble to sink:
Each sweet Ebenezer
  I have in review
Confirms His good pleasure
  To help me quite through.
Why should I complain
  Of want or distress,
Temptation or pain?
  He told me no less;
The heirs of salvation,
  I know from His Word,
Through much tribulation
  Must follow their Lord.
How bitter that cup
  No heart can conceive,
Which He drank quite up,
  That sinners might live!
His way was much rougher
  And darker than mine;
Did Christ, my Lord, suffer,
  And shall I repine?
Since all that I meet
  Shall work for my good,
The bitter is sweet,
  The medicine, food;
Though painful at present,
  ’Twill cease before long,
And then, oh, how pleasant
  The conqueror’s song!
Yinka Eni

Inspiring song as life storms swings us daily.

Surely there is an end, our expectation shall not cut off. Keep on trusting, Christ will not fail. What He has promised to do, He will surely do. Thanks for uploading this song. God bless you.

The hymn that soothes my soul. It was the late President Mills' best hymn.

This hymn reminds and assures me of God's love and faithfulness. Help me rest assured in You oh Lord.

I have sung this song for so many years being a methodist. Now I attend a charismatic church because that's where my husband fellowship. But this song came to me so strongly as I showered this morning. The message it brought, I haven't had that throughout my 30 years of being a methodist. It's such a blessing. Thank You Jesus.

Why should I complain of want or distress, temptation or pain. Oh how I love You Jesus.

This cup that I drink

Is heavy and tart

I wonder and think

Why I must be part

But then I remember

He gave me His all

So I like my Jesus

Will answer God's call

What a wonderful and inspiring song. I have known it since my childhood and it has been a refreshing companion ever since. The words of it - how heavy, how spiritual, how true! The composer, like many Hymn writers, truly had the precious Old-Time faith, which our present fast-paced and light world lacks. How I love the song!

What a hymn! Very poetic to the core! The words of this hymn give much assurance that when I listen to it my eyes are filled with tears. I have been through many trials and temptations like any true child of God will have to experience, yet this hymn has been a favourite and I give the Almighty, Omnipotent God, the El-Shadai all the glory for the writer of this song, that is, a British, John Newton. I like the rendition of the Winneba Youth Choir. It is very moving!
