A Present Help (God Of Pity) - DEMO Version

by Indelible Grace Music



Jack Mischnick set this old hymn text by Charlotte Elliott (author of Just As I Am) to a new tune. We hope to record this song on the next Indelible Grace project. But with the pandemic we thought we should share this song now as it might be of use to churches during this season. Please forgive the audio quality (yes we know there are some clicks and other weird noises on the track.) This is a demo recording - a rough recording, not a fully produced professional version of the song as we hope to produce one day.


A Present Help (God Of Pity)
Words by Charlotte Elliott (alt Mischnick) Music by Jack Mischnick
(c)2020 Jack Mischnick Music

1. God of pity! God of love! / Send me comfort from above
Let not anxious thoughts perplex / Harrowing fears my spirit vex
Let me trust thee, and be still / Waiting patiently Thy will.

2. Though to weak short-sighted man / All uncertain seems each plan
Each event Thy will ordains / Fixed immutably remains
Not one link in life’s long chain / Can be lost, or wrought in vain.

3. All that chain, through bygone years / Woven in links of love appears
Not one storm of vengeful wrath / E’er has swept across my path
Why should fear o’er faith prevail? / Thy sure mercies cannot fail.

4. What are distance, time, or place / To that God who fills all space?
What are sea or land to Him? / Can the eye Omniscient dim?
Those we love, whate’er betide / Does that eye o’er them preside

5. Clinging to Thy strengthening arm / Thou wilt keep me safe from harm;
Thou wilt grant the hope that cheers / Will prove better than my fears;
Bid my sad misgivings cease / Guide me to my home in peace.
