183. 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 O 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 led the way
Now and when life is ending.
