Representative Text

1 What if here thy path is shadowed,
And the heavy clouds sweep low,
God’s almighty arms uphold thee
And he will not let thee go.

Refrain:
Trust him, trust him, through the shadow
Press the closer to his side;
Trust him, trust him, he will guide thee,
And no evil will betide.

2 All the way he knows, thy Father,
All its peril, all its pain,
Look to him, he will not fail thee,
And thou canst not trust in vain. [Refrain]

3 Yield thy soul to his dear keeping,
Lay thy hand within his own,
Tho’ life’s tempests gather o’er thee,
He will leave thee not alone. [Refrain]
