If thou but suffer God to guide thee and hope in Him through all thy ways,
What can these anxious cares avail thee, these never-ceasing moans and sighs?
Be patient and await His leisure in cheerful hope, with heart content
God knows full well when times of gladness shall be the needful thing for thee.
Nor think amid the fiery trial that God hath cast thee off unheard,
Sing, pray, and keep His ways unswerving, perform thy duties faithfully,
"Give your burdens to the Lord, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall." -- Psalm 55:22
