Though My Soul Be in DistressDon Fortner


(Tune: #42 — All Hail The Power of Jesus’ Name — CM)



1.        Christ Jesus is my righteousness;

In Him alone I trust.

And though my soul be in distress,

He’s still my Savior just.



2.        Though I am often sore oppressed,

Bowed down with sin and woe,

My sinful soul in Him finds rest;

From Whom my comforts flow.



3.        I will lay down and sweetly sleep,

For I have peace with God.

Though weak and wretched, God will keep

This sinner bought with blood.



4.        Though Satan roar and countless foes

My soul seek to destroy,

My God their counsels overthrows,

And turns my grief to joy!
