On my willing lips is a hymn

Representative Text

1 On my willing lips is a hymn of praise,
In my heart a glad new song;
For the blessed Lord is my guide and guard,
And my refuge safe and strong.

I will trust him, fully trust him,
In his strength go forth undismayed,
For his promise faileth never,
I will trust, and not be afraid.

2 Tho’ my place may be at the battle’s front,
He will be my strength and shield;
In his armor clad there is naught to fear,
To his might the foe must yield. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ he leadeth me by a path unknown,
‘Tis because along that way
Grow the flow’rs of faith and of perfect trust,
That will bloom to endless day. [Refrain]

4 By his pow’r upheld, in his love secure,
From my heart his praise I sing;
And I safely rest, while the days go by,
‘Neath the shadow of his wing. [Refrain]
