Alone with none but you, my God

Alone with none but you, my God,
I journey on my way:
what need I fear, when you are near,
O King of night and day?
More safe am I within your hand
than if a host did round me stand.

2. My destined time is fixed by you
and death’s appointed hour;
though warriors strong around me throng
they could not halt its power:
no walls of stone defend us here
when comes your final messenger.

3. My life I yield to your decree,
and bow to your control
in peaceful calm, for from your arm
no power can snatch my soul:
no earthly omens can appal
the one who heeds God’s heavenly call.

4. The child of God need fear no ill,
his chosen, dread no foe;
we leave our fate with you, and wait
your bidding when to go:
for not from chance our comfort springs-
you are our trust, O King of kings!
