Trustfulness
By J. Leonard Levy
 
   Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and rely not on thine own understanding.—Prov. iii: 5.

THOU, God, the only God,
  Father of all!
Thou gladly hearest us
  If we but call.
When sin controls with power,        5
When fears our hopes devour,
In sorrow’s chastening hour,
  Be Thou e’er nigh.
 
Oft we forget Thy love,
  O God most kind!        10
Oft we neglect Thy law,
  Light to the blind.
Our every joy is Thine,
Gift of Thy grace divine,
Long let Thy mercy shine        15
  On us below.
 
Thou Master of all worlds,
  Of all adored!
Aid us to do Thy will,
  Eternal Lord!        20
Let not Thy love depart,
Enter the prayerful heart,
With wrong we then shall part
  For evermore.
 
Where’er Thou leadest us,        25
  O Thou most High!
Humbly we follow Thee,
  To do or die.
Should’st Thou our path make bright,
Should’st Thou afflict with blight,        30
Yet both by day and night
  We trust in Thee.
