Georg Neumark, 1640

Verse 1

If thou but suffer God to guide thee

And hope in Him through all thy ways,

He’ll give thee strength, whate’er betide thee,

And bear thee through the evil days.

Who trusts in God’s unchanging love

Builds on the Rock that naught can move.

Verse 2

What can these anxious cares avail thee,

These never-ceasing moans and sighs?

What can it help if thou bewail thee

O’er each dark moment as it flies?

Our cross and trials do but press

The heavier for our bitterness.

Verse 3

Only be still and wait His leisure

In cheerful hope, with heart content

To take whate’er thy Father’s pleasure

And His discerning love hath sent,

Nor doubt our inmost wants are known

To Him who chose us for His own.

Verse 4

God knows full well when times of gladness

Shall be the needful thing for thee.

When He has tried thy soul with sadness

And from all guile has found thee free,

He comes to thee all unaware

And makes thee own His loving care.

Verse 5

Nor think amid the fiery trial

That God hath cast thee off unheard,

That he whose hopes meet no denial

Must surely be of God preferred.

Time passes and much change doth bring

And sets a bound to everything.

Verse 6

All are alike before the Highest;

‘Tis easy to our God, we know,

To raise thee up, though low thou liest,

To make the rich man poor and low.

True wonders still by Him are wrought

Who setteth up and brings to naught.

Verse 7

Sing, pray, and keep His ways unswerving,

Perform thy duties faithfully,

And trust His Word, though undeserving,

Thou yet shalt find it true for thee.

God never yet forsook in need

The soul that trusted Him indeed.
