Representative Text

1 Though I walk the shore that rims the ocean,
Though I face the storm upon the sea;
In the hands of love I rest securely,
For I know my Lord will care for me.

I will trust Him in the valley of the shadow,
I will trust Him on the wild and stormy sea;
I will trust Him anywhere because He loves me,
I will trust Him thro’ eternity.

2 If He bids me walk within the valley
Where the darkness hides His blessed face,
He will surely keep my feet from falling,
While my soul is trusting in His grace. [Refrain]

3 If to lands unknown He bids me journey,
Or to lift the heavy load of care;
If I bear the cross for Him who suffered,
In His glory I shall have a share. [Refrain]

4 He has built a home of many mansions,
Where my longing soul at last shall rest;
When I rise complete in His perfection,
I shall join the chorus of the blest. [Refrain]
