Author: Paul Flemming, 1609-40; Catherine Winkworth, 1827-78 Hymnal: Together in Song #553 (1999) Meter: 22.214.171.124.8.6 Scripture: 2 Corinthians 12:8-11 Lyrics: 1 In all my ways, in every task,
the counsel of my God I ask,
who rules all things aright;
unless he guides both thought and deed
the wisest plans cannot succeed;
in vain is human might.
2 I lean upon his mighty arm;
he keeps me safe from every harm
and all calamity.
If by his guidance I shall live,
whatever's useful he will give,
and naught can injure me.
3 To those I love he will be near,
their heart with bounteous gifts will cheer;
he is my shield and theirs;
and he will grant beyond our thought
what they and I alike have sought
with all our fervent prayers.
4 Then let me never be afraid,
but trust in him who all has made;
on him reliant rest.
Through life, wherever I may go,
my loving God will always know
what for my need is best. Topics: Confirmation Service; Faith ; Fear; God's Love to Us; Personal Petition; Pilgrimage; Protection; Providence; Sovereignty of God; Trust in God Languages: English Tune Title: TRAVELLER
