1 Life lies before me,
Naught in it can I control,
So I give it in His keeping,
The Lord Jesus of my soul;
So I give it in His keeping,
The Lord Jesus of my soul.
I’ll trust whate’er befall,
I’ll trust Him thro’ it all.

2 Sorrow lies before me;
Friends are precious to console,
But He surpasses all in comfort,
The Lord Jesus of my soul;
But He surpasses all in comfort,
The Lord Jesus of my soul.
I’ll trust whate’er befall,
I’ll trust Him thro’ it all.

3 Darkness lies before me;
I cannot see the goal,
I can only hold fast trusting—
The Lord Jesus of my soul;
I can only hold fast trusting—
The Lord Jesus of my soul.
I’ll trust whate’er befall,
I’ll trust Him thro’ it all.

4 Vict’ry lies before me!
Satan shall not have control,
For He’s stronger than the tempter,
The Lord Jesus of my soul;
For He’s stronger than the tempter,
The Lord Jesus of my soul.
I’ll trust whate’er befall,
I’ll trust Him thro’ it all.

5 Joy lies before me!
For His grace doth keep me whole;
And my heart shall e’er keep praising,
The Lord Jesus of my soul;
And my heart shall e’er keep praising,
The Lord Jesus of my soul.
I’ll trust whate’er befall,
I’ll praise Him thro’ it all.
