This hymn text was written to be sung to the tune FINLANDIA.

Verse 1:

We stand in pain and long to see salvation
For we have known your comfort and relief.
We try again to gain some consolation
But former blessings fade in present grief.
Subdue, O God, the torrents of temptation;
Redeem our hearts, restore our lost belief.
