1 When we cannot see our way,
Let us trust, and still obey;
He who bids us forward go,
Cannot fail the way to show.
2 Though the sea be deep and wide,
Though a passage be denied;
Fearless let us still proceed,
Since the Lord vouchsafes to lead.
3 Though it seems the gloom of night,
Though we see no ray of light:
Since the Lord Himself is there,
‘Tis not meet that we should fear.
4 Night with Him is never night,
Where He is, there all is light;
When He calls us, why delay?
They are happy who obey.
5 Be it ours then while we’re here,
Him to follow without fear!
Where He calls us, there to go,
What He bids us, that to do.
