Wait on God and trust him

Representative Text

1 Wait on God, and trust Him through all thy days;
Cast thy cares upon Him who guides all thy ways.
Do not despair; as the morning fair
Scatters fog and darkness, God removes thy care.
’Midst all thy trials, in all thy care
God remains thy faithful friend everywhere.

2 Wait on God, and trust Him through all thy days;
Cast thy cares upon Him who guides all thy ways.
Perish what will, God is refuge still;
Greater than the Helper is not any ill.
Faithful, eternal Savior and Friend,
Save my soul from evil unto the end.

3 Wait on God, and trust Him through all thy days;
Cast thy cares upon Him who guides all thy ways.
Take up thy cross; count it not a loss,
For the heat of sorrow melts away the dross.
Jesus, dear Savior, patient and mild,
Let me be obedient, a trusting child.

4 Wait on God, and trust Him through all thy days;
Cast thy cares upon Him who guides all thy ways.
On bended knee, Lord, I cry to Thee;
Shield my soul from evil; to Thy cross I flee.
Gracious Redeemer, mighty and strong,
Let me sing rejoicing the victor’s song.
