What time I am afraid, I will trust in Thee,
For only Thou art my safety for time and eternity.
The Lord protecteth His own as a mother hen with her chicks under her wing.
In the midnight of sorrow and distress, He can cause you to sing.
Call upon me and I will answer thee, the Bible doth say,
I will show thee great and mighty things by trusting God’s way.
In our darkest night of anxiety and utter despair,
In the midnight of trouble we can find the Lord in prayer.
God can do the impossible when there seems no possible way out,
He can fill our heart with faith and trust and remove all our doubt.
God has not given us the spirit of fear but of love and power and a sound mind,
He does not want us to doubt or have any fears of the wrong kind.
FAITH is the conqueror over all doubt and anxiety and fear,
We can always know in the midst of our problems, God is always near.
Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world,
So take all your anxiety and fear and on the Lord hurl.
A faith that has not been tested cannot be trusted it is true,
So thank God for the valley you are having to pass through.
You will come through refined as gold tried in the fire,
Knowing god has His perfect will should be our heart’s desire.
God knows the frail weakness of our human frame,
So He tells us to trust Jesus Christ’s perfect name.
God will do for us what no earthly person ever could,
God will see you through, because He said He would!
