1 God has given me a song,
A song of trust’
And I sing it all day long,
For sing I must;
Ev’ry hour it sweeter grows,
Keep my soul with blest repose;
Just how restful no one knows,
But those who trust, but those who trust.

I sing a song, a song of trust,
For sing I must;
And soon I’ll stand at thy right hand,
My Savior dear, my ransom price,
And sing the song of Paradise.

2 O I sing it on the mountain,
In the light,
Where the radiance of God’s sunshine,
Makes all bright;
All my path seems bright and clear,
Heav’nly land seems very near;
Why, I almost then appear
To walk by sight, to walk by sight. [Refrain]

3 And I sing it in the valley
Dark and low;
When my heart is crushed with sorrow,
Pain, and woe;
Then the shadows flee away,
Like the night when dawns the day;
Trust in God brings light alway—
I find it so, I find it so. [Refrain]

4 For I’ve cross’d the river Jordan,
And I stand
In the blessed land of promise,—
Beulah land!
Trusting is like breathing here,
Just so easy doubt and fear
Vanish in this atmosphere,
And life is grand, and life is grand. [Refrain]
