Reflect on the Hymn “If You Will Trust in God to Guide You”
by Georg Neumark
If you will trust in God to guide you,
and hope in God through all your ways,
God will give strength, whate'er betide you,
and bear you through the evil days.
Who trusts in God's unchanging love
builds on the rock that will not move.
God will embrace your pain and weeping,
your helpless anger and distress.
If you are in God’s care and keeping,
in sorrow will God love you less?
For Christ who took for you a cross,
Will bring you safe through every loss.
Sing, pray, and keep God's ways unswerving;
so do your own part faithfully,
and trust God's word; though undeserving,
you'll find God's promise true to be.
God never will forsake in need
the soul that trusts in God indeed.
Chalice Hymnal 565
