Trust

Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this:

He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn,

the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.

Psalm 37:5-6


Trust and rest when all around thee
puts thy faith to sorest test;


Let no fear or foe confound thee,
wait for God and trust and rest.


Trust and rest with heart abiding,
like a birling in its nest,


Underneath His feathers hiding,
fold thy wings and trust and rest.

The Rock that is Higher than I



O sometimes how long seems the day,
and someetimes how weary my feet;
But toiling in life's dusty way,
the Rock's blessed shadow how sweet!


O then to the Rock let me fly, to the Rock that is higher than I.




O near to the Rock let me keep
if blessings or sorrows prevail,
or climbing the mountain way steep,
or walking the shadowy vail.



O then to the Rock let me fly, to the Rock that is higher than I.

- Erastus Johnson
