A based on the revelations from Doctrine & Covenants while Joesph Smith was in Liberty Jail. From the album collection “Thy Healing Hands – Songs of Comfort and Peace”.
But A Moment
O, God in Heaven where art thou?
Uncover thy hiding place.
May thy heart move with compassion
T’ward me with thy lasting grace?
My soul seeks for peace
On bended knees;
O, wilt thy strength become mine?
I give thee my will,
I’m quiet and still
To hear gentle words sublime.
But a moment
Thine afflictions last
But a moment
Then the moment’s past.
Peace be unto thy soul
For the Lord will make thee whole.
Please stretch forth thy hand to reach me.
How long shall thy hand be stayed?
O God how long shall I suffer?
Hast thou heard the words I’ve prayed?
If thou hears my cry
Where is thy reply?
O let thine ear be inclined.
Help me to believe
That faith can relieve
All my suffering in thy time.
When the trials seem too much to bear,
Help me to remember that thou art there.
Because for me thou did suffer
And bleed in Gethsemene
I’ll trust thy great love forever
And give my pain over to thee.
I look to thy power
To bring strength each hour
All my hopes are resting in thee.
The fourth watch is near,
Yet I have no fear
When thou speaks these words of peace.
