Representative Text

1 When on quiet seas I sail,
Or when blows the stormy gale,
This I pray, come any test,
Strength to say, God knoweth best.

2 Come my share of weal or woe,
Stronger, braver will I grow,
Pray, and leave to Him the rest,
Time will prove, God knoweth best.

3 So shall gain or bitter loss
Draw me nearer to the cross;
E’en by trials sore oppressed,
I will sing, God knoweth best.
