10060. Daily Cares and Worries

1 When you are sore bewildered,
Not knowing what to do,
When all your schemes seemed baffled,
And earthly helpers few—

2 Go the Lord for guidance
As well as for His grace;
Look up for His direction,
And strength to run the race.

3 He will be very gracious
When unto Him you cry;
When He shall hear He’ll answer
To prove that He is nigh.

4 What tho’ you cannot see it,
Each step is marked for you,
Planned in the light of His deep love,
Who gave His life for you.

5 He knows your every sorrow,
Each little cross and care;
Each trifling daily worry
So difficult to bear.

6 ’Twas just because He loved you
He left His throne on high;
To save you and redeem you,
To suffer and to die.

7 And still because He loves you
These little worries come,
That they may ever tell you,
You are not yet at "home."

8 But in this far-off country,
Where weary feet oft slide,
How restful to remember
Your Savior is your guide.

9 Yes! near each day to whisper
His words into your ear,
"This the way—walk in it;
Go forward—never fear."

10 Near you till life is over,
Near you by day and night;
Near you until He takes you
Into His perfect light!
