649. When We Cannot See our Way

1 When we cannot see our way,
Let us trust, and still obey;
He who bids us forward go,
Cannot fail the way to show.

2 Though it seems the bloom of night,
Though we see no ray of light;
Since the Lord Himself is there,
‘Tis not meet that we should fear.

3 Night with Him is never night,
Where He is, there all is light;
When He calls us, why delay?
They are happy who obey.

4 Be it our’s then, while we’re here,
Him to follow without fear!
Where He calls us, there to go,
What He bids us, that to do!
