Trust Him On the Foamy Sea

Trust in God for every blessing

Author: Jones
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.

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]
