man sadAre you standing at "Wits End Corner,"
Christian, with troubled brow?
Are you thinking of what is before you,
And all you are bearing now?

Does all the world seem against you,
And you in the battle alone?
Remember, at "Wits End Corner,"
Is where God's power is shown.

Are you standing at "Wits End Corner,"
Blinded with wearing pain,
Feeling you cannot endure it,
You cannot bear the strain,

Bruised through the constant suffering,
Dizzy, and dazed, and numb?
Remember at "Wits End Corner"
Is where Jesus loves to come.

Are you standing at "Wits End Corner,"
Your work before you spread,
All lying begun, unfinished,
And pressing on heart and head,

Longing for strength to do it,
Stretching out trembling hands?
Remember, at "Wits End Corner,"
The Burden Bearer stands.

Are you standing at "Wits End Corner?"
Then you're just in the very spot,
To learn the wondrous resources
Of Him who faileth not.

No doubt to a brighter pathway
Your footsteps will soon be moved,
But only at "Wits End Corner"
Is the "God Who is Able" proved.
