Representative Text

1 When storms upon my way appear,
And I am driven far from shore,
I know my Savior still is near,
I only need to trust Him more!

I only need to trust Him more and more,
To love Him better than I have before,
In faith believing He will strength restore,
I only need to trust Him more!

2 When fallen ‘neath my load of care,
When courage fails and hope is o’er,
He comes in answer to my prayer,
I only need to trust Him more! [Refrain]

3 No matter what my pain or grief,
If I but seek His open door,
His presence always gives relief,
I only need to trust Him more! [Refrain]
