Full Text

1 It is better to trust in the Lord,
Than to lean on the wavering arm
Of the kings and the princes of earth;
God alone is a refuge from harm.

Refrain:
Trust the Lord, O trust in the Lord;
Low at his feet let us fall!
Trust the Lord, O trust in the Lord,
For he is the King over all.

2 It is better to trust in the Lord,
For the word of his promise is sure;
Tho' the way may be rugged and dark,
There are bright crowns for those who endure. [Refrain]

3 It is better to trust in the Lord,
Resting firm in his infinite love;
And with gladness to serve him below,
Till we enter his kingdom above. [Refrain]
