Representative Text

1 In humble faith at Jesus’ feet,
Oh, may I learn a lesson sweet,
That whether sun or rain I see,
God’s way is always best for me.

God’s way is best for you, for me;
Oh, may we all more trustful be,
Until, beyond the parting sea,
I’ll sing, God’s way was best for me.

2 His way may lead through sunny vales,
O’er rocky steeps, ’mid stormy gales;
The truest course His eye can see;
God’s way is always best for me. [Refrain]

3 He never bids me go alone;
His loving arms around me thrown,
My guide, my keeper He will be;
God’s way is always best for me. [Refrain]

4 So, step by step in faith and love,
I’ll walk the path that leads above:
Till day shall break, and shadows flee,
God’s way is always best for me. [Refrain]
