1 Put thou thy trust in God,
in duty's path go on;
walk in his strength with faith and hope,
so shall thy work be done.
2 Commit thy ways to him,
thy works into his hands,
and rest on his unchanging word,
who heaven and earth commands.
3 Though years on years roll on,
his covenant shall endure;
though clouds and darkness hide his path,
the promised grace is sure.
4 Give to the winds thy fears;
hope, and be undismayed:
God hears thy sighs and counts thy tears;
God shall lift up thy head.
5 Through waves and clouds and storms
his power will clear thy way:
wait thou his time; the darkest night
shall end in brightest day.
6 Leave to his sovereign sway
to choose and to command;
so shalt thou, wondering, own his way,
how wise, how strong his hand.
