From This Dark World
From this dark world
I make my fast
And to Christ my King
my burdens are cast
For in His Kingdom
The first shall be last
It is His mighty Hand
Holding the future
and the past.
Christ is my Light
That I can see
He lifts my burdens
and strengthens me
His work alone
Has set me free
This is my praise song
for all of eternity.
16Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 17But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face; 18That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.
