1 God lives! can I despair,
As if He were not mine?
Is not my life His care?
Is not His hand divine?
God lives! there rest my soul;
God hears! before Him bow;
God sees! and can control;
God leads! then follow thou.
2 God hears, when none will hear;
My soul, art thou afraid?
My sighs mount to His ear;
Will He refuse His aid? [Refrain]
3 God sees! my heart, be still!
He knows thy deepest pain;
The joy that once did thrill,
The sorrows that remain. [Refrain]
4 God leads! I follow on
Thro’ paths that He will show;
Tho’ daylight oft be gone,
His guiding hand I know. [Refrain]
