P. Gerhardt


PUT thou thy trust in God,

In duty’s path go on;

Walk in His strength with faith and hope,

So shall thy work be done.


Commit thy ways to Him,

Thy works unto His hands,

And rest on His unchanging Word,

Who heaven and earth commands.


Though days and years roll on,

His covenant shall endure;

Though clouds and darkness hide His face,

The promised grace is sure.


Through waves, and clouds, and storms,

His power will clear thy way;

Wait thou His time; the darkest night

Shall end in brightest day.


Thou seest our weakness, Lord,

Our hearts are known to Thee;

O lift Thou up the sinking head,

Confirm the feeble knee.


Let us in life, in death,

Thy steadfast truth declare,

And publish with our latest breath

Thy love and guardian care.
