1 “Have faith in God,” the Saviour said:
He saw the path that we must tread;
The frequent thorn, the fading flow’r,
The joy or pain of ev’ry hour.
O blessed faith! Its song of cheer
Revives our hope, dispels our fear;
The Shepherd’s staff, The Shepherd’s rod.
Still leads us on; have faith in God, in God.
2 Have faith in God, tho’ clouds may arise
And overspread the glowing skies;
Tho’ sun and stars grow dim and pale,
His boundless love shall never fail. [Refrain]
3 Have faith in God: a Father’s heart
Would to His child all good impart;
Much more will He regard the pray’r
Of those who cast on Him their care. [Refrain]
4 Have faith in God: His word divine
By day and night shall brightly shine,
Until we pass the gates of life
And faith shall yield to blissful sight. [Refrain]
