Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

The Composed Song

1. Even when sorrow fills my heart

Yea even when I have no hope

And when I cannot even pray

When I also sleep for sadness

Thy word has become my own hope

When all my hope has ‘ven ended

2. Even when I am valueless

And when I have been forsaken

When I have even been cast off

When they ‘ve made me weary of life

Oh thou Jesus even in love

Hath use thine hand to draw me close

3. When am betrayed by one I loved

And when I am on the sick bed

And when my loved ones ‘lso die

‘Stead of acquit when am convicted

Even in Jesus I have joy

‘Cause thou art even my comfort

4. When I have even been put down

And when my tear is even my food

That I am walking in fasting

That sorrow hath covered my heart

Thou wipeth off even my tears

Thou put an end to my fasting
