1 What time I am afraid
I put my trust in thee;
in God I rest, and praise
his Word, so rich and free.

2 In God I put my trust,
I neither doubt nor fear,
for man can never harm
with God, my helper, near.

3 In God, the Lord, I rest,
his Word of grace I praise;
his promise stands secure,
nor fear nor foe dismays.

4 Upon me are thy vows,
O God, in whom I live;
the sacrifice of praise
to thee I now will give.

5 For thou hast saved from death,
from falling kept me free,
that in the light of life
my walk may be with thee.
