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 seem denied,
Fearless let us still proceed,
Since the Lord vouchsafes to lead.
3 Though it be 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.
