Trust Him On the Foamy Sea

Trust in God for every blessing

Author: Jones
Tune: TRUST HIM ON THE FOAMY SEA
Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Trust in God, for every blessing,
Trust in God from day to day;
When the stormy tempest rages,
Go, by simple faith, and pray.

Chorus:
Trust Him while He gives you breath,
Trust Him in the vale of death,
Trust Him on the foamy sea,
Trust Him thro' eternity.

2 God will never fail His children,
If His promise they believe;
In the precious name of Jesus
All we ask, we shall receive. [Chorus]

3 Are the ties of earthly friendship
Crushed and broken, one by one?
Trust in God, and say, rejoicing,
Lord, Thy will, not mine, be done! [Chorus]

4 Trust in God, the Rock of Ages,
Then thy feet shall stand secure;
Bear thy cross without repining,
Patient to the end endure. [Chorus]
