Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Commit thy way unto the Lord in troubles and distress

Commit thy way unto the Lord in troubles and distress

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Commit thy way unto the Lord,
In troubles and distress;
And let his promise be your guard,
Your trust, your hope and peace.

2 All your complaints to him are known
And open to his view;
Your ev'ry sigh and ev'ry groan,
He hears and answers too.

3 His ways and dealings all are just,
Tho' not as man request;
Yet all his dispensations must
Then answer for the best.

4 Tho' pain and sickness bear you down
Like as a heavy load;
Yet all may serve to gain the crown,
Bestow'd on you from God.

5 Here view the footsteps of his love,
And tokens of his grace,
Whom he relieves, he must reprove,
That they may learn his ways.

6 And shouldst thou pass the vale of death,
The Lord will be thy friend;
And breathing of the latest breath,
Thy life in peace shall end.
