Lyrics

God’s way is the best way,
Tho’ I may not see
Why sorrows and trials
Oft gather ’round me;
He ever is seeking
My gold to refine,
So humbly I trust Him,
My Savior divine.

Refrain

God’s way is the best way,
God’s way is the right way,
I’ll trust in Him alway,
He knoweth the best.

God’s way is the best way,
My path He hath planned,
I’ll trust in Him alway
While holding His hand.
In shadow or sunshine
He ever is near,
With Him for my refuge,
I never need fear.

Refrain

God’s way shall be my way,
He knoweth the best.
And leaning upon Him,
Sweet, sweet is my rest.
No harm can befall me,
Safe, safe shall I be,
I’ll cling to Him ever,
So precious is He.

Refrain
