1 When the way is so dark that no light we can see,
It is better to trust in the Lord;
There is always one refuge to which we may flee,
It is better to trust in the Lord.

Refrain:
Then “trust in the Lord with all thine heart!”
O fear not the darkest night;
“In all thy ways acknowledge Him,”
And He surely will guide thee aright.

2 When we think of our sins and are filled with distress,
It is better to trust in the Lord;
It is folly to trust in our own righteousness,
It is better to trust in the Lord. [Refrain]

3 Let us learn in the time when the billows run high,
It is better to trust in the Lord;
It is vain for our help upon man to rely,
It is better to trust in the Lord. [Refrain]

4 So, whatever the trouble, whatever the need,
It is better to trust in the Lord;
We shall find Him a friend and a helper indeed,
It is better to trust in the Lord. [Refrain]
