Day 14 | Be Gone Unbelief

This is a hymn from British pastor John Newton (who also wrote “Amazing Grace”). It is a prayer poem that yearns to hold fast to faith in Jesus even when life seems heavy, confusing, and painful.

Be gone 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 has 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 
Since all that I meet shall work for my good
The bitter is sweet, the medicine is food
Though painful at present, twill cease before long
And then, oh how pleasant the conqueror’s song
