406. In You, Lord, I Have Put My Trust

1 In you, Lord, I have put my trust;
Leave me not helpless in the dust,
Let me not be confounded.
Let in your Word
My faith, O Lord,
Be always firmly grounded.

2 Oh, listen, Lord, most graciously
And hear my cry, my prayer, my plea,
Make haste for my protection;
For woes and fear
Surround me here.
Help me in my affliction.

3 You are my strength, my shield, my rock,
My fortress that withstands each shock,
My help, my life, my tower,
My battle sword, Almighty Lord,
What can resist your power?

4 With you, Lord, I have cast my lot;
O faithful God, forsake me not,
To you my soul commending.
Lord, be my stay
And lead the way
Now and when life is ending.

5 All honor, praise, and majesty
To Father, Son, and Spirit be,
Our God forever glorious,
In whose rich grace
We run our race
Till we depart victorious.
