270. Put all your trust in God

1 Put all your trust in God,
in duty's path go on;
walk in his strength with faith and hope,
so shall your work be done.
Give to the winds your fears;
hope, and be undismayed;
God hears your sighs and counts your tears,
God shall lift up your head.

2 Through waves, and clouds, and storms
he gently clears your way;
await his time; so shall this night
soon end in joyful day.
Leave to his sovereign sway
to choose and to command;
then you shall marvel at his way
how wise, how strong his hand!

3 You see our weakness, Lord;
our hearts are known to you:
give strength to every failing hand
and keep our footsteps true.
Let us, in life, in death,
your steadfast truth declare,
confessing, with our final breath,
your love and guardian care.
