12596. Perfect Trust

1 I may not always know the way,
Wherein God leads my feet,
But this I know, that ’round my path,
His love and wisdom meet;
And so I rest, content to know,
He leads my feet where’er I go,
And so I rest, content to know,
He leads my feet where’er I go,
Where’er I go.

2 Sometimes above the path I tread,
The clouds hang dark and low;
But thro’ the gloom, or thro’ the night,
My heart no fear can know;
For close beside me walks a friend,
Who whispers low unto the end,
For close beside me walks a friend,
Who whispers low unto the end,
Unto the end.

3 I may not always understand
Just why He sends to me
Some bitter grief, some heavy loss,
But tho’ I cannot see,
I kneel and whisper thro’ my tears,
A prayer for help, and know He hears,
I kneel and whisper thro’ my tears,
A prayer for help, and know He hears,
And know He hears.

4 My cherished plans and hopes may fail,
My idols turn to dust;
But this I know, my Father’s love
Is always safe to trust;
These things were dear to me, but still,
Above them all I love His will;
These things were dear to me, but still,
Above them all I love His will,
I love His will.

5 Oh, precious peace within my heart!
O blessèd rest, to know
A Father’s love keeps constant watch,
Amid life’s ebb and flow;
I ask no more than this, I rest
Content, and know His way is best;
I ask no more than this, I rest
Content, and know His way is best,
His way is best.
