761. Leave God to order all your ways

Authors: Neumark, Georg Christian, Winkworth, Catherine

Leave God to order all your ways:
whatever comes, in him confide;
you’ll find him in the evil days
your all-sufficient strength and guide:
who trusts in God’s unchanging love
builds on the rock that none can move.

2. Only your restless heart keep still
and wait in cheerful hope, content
in taking what his gracious will,
his all-discerning love, has sent;
for all our inmost needs are known
to him who chose us for his own.

3. Sing, pray and turn not from his ways,
but do your own part faithfully:
trust his rich promises of grace;
and their fulfilment you shall see.
God never yet forsook in need
the soul that trusted him indeed.
