Robert Harkness (1880–1961)


When life perplexes thee,
When evil vexes thee,
Lift up thy heart;
Nothing thou needest fear,
Jesus thy Lord is near,
He will support and cheer,
Just where thou art.

Leave not thy post to find
Peace for thy troubled mind,
Lift up thy heart;
Strong in His holy name,
Victor o’er sin and shame,
Power over Satan claim,
Just where thou art.

When no temptations press,
Watch thou, and nonetheless,
Lift up thy heart;
Stand on the Mas­ter’s side,
And in His love abide,
Trustful and satisfied,
Just where thou art.

Then shall His Spir­it’s grace
Make thee His dwelling-place,
Glow in thy heart;
And from those eyes of thine,
Out on the world will shine
Light of His life divine,
Just where thou art.
