Lyrics

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
This is God’s gra­cious com­mand;
In all your ways ack­now­ledge Him,
So shall you dwell in the land.

Refrain

Trust in the Lord, O trou­bled soul,
Rest in the arms of His care;
Whatever your lot, it mat­ter­eth not,
For no­thing can trou­ble you there;
Trust in the Lord, O trou­bled soul,
Nothing can trou­ble you there.

Trust in the Lord who rul­eth all,
Seeth all things as they are,
Be it a bird­ling in its nest,
Or yon­der ut­ter­most star.

Refrain

Trust in the Lord and peace­ful be,
Fret not thy spir­it in vain,
What though the an­swer tar­ries long,
Still shalt thou praise Him again.

Refrain

Trust in the Lord—His eye will guide
All thro’ your path­way ahead,
He hath re­deemed and He will keep,
Trust Him and be not afraid.
