Wait! patiently wait, God never is late:
Thy budding plans are in Thy Father’s holding,
And only wait His grand divine unfolding;
Then wait, wait, patiently wait.

Trust! hopefully trust! That God will adjust
Thy tangled life: And from its dark concealings
Will bring His will in all its bright revealings;
Then trust, trust, hopefully trust.

Rest! peacefully rest! On His loving breast:
Breathe in His ear Thy sacred, high ambition
And He will bring it forth in blest fruition.
Then rest, rest, peacefully rest!
