100. The Secret of Tranquillity

1 Forever trusting in the Lord,
Take heed to do His will;
So shall you dwell within the land,
So shall you dwell within the land,
And He your needs shall fill.

2 Delight thee in the Lord, and He
Will grant thy heart's request;
To Him commit thy way in faith,
To Him commit thy way in faith,
And thus thou shalt be blessed.

3 And He shall make your righteousness
Shine brightly as the light,
And as the burning noonday sun,
And as the burning noonday sun
Thy judgment shall be bright.

4 Rest in the Lord with quiet trust,
Wait patiently for Him;
Tho' wickedness triumphant seem,
Tho' wickedness triumphant seem,
Let not thy faith grow dim.
