1 Have faith in God, what e’er your lot may be,
His voice can still the most tempestuous sea;
Tho’ lightning flash, and thunders crash,
His faithful eye is ever watching thee.

Refrain:
Have faith in God!
Have faith in God!
His mighty arm, will shield from harm, have faith in God!
Have faith in God!
Have faith in God!
Oh, troubled one
Have faith in God!

2 The sparrow’s fall He watches from above,
The flow’rs that bloom are objects of His love;
In times of stress and wretchedness,
His faithful eye is ever watching thee. [Refrain]

3 The light may fade and darker grow the way,
He knows the trials of the passing day;
With sweet caress He waits to bless,
His faithful eye is ever watching thee. [Refrain]
