Our deeper basis for optimism! A SATURDAY THOUGHT

"Trust the eternal" by Tony Lobl - web

Here is the complete hymn – Hymn 359

Trust the Eternal when the shadows gather,

When joys of daylight seem so like a dream; 

God the unchanging pities like a father; 

Trust on and wait, the daystar yet shall gleam.


Trust the Eternal, for the clouds that vanish 

No more can move the mountains from their base 

Than sin’s illusive wreaths of mist can banish

Light from His throne or loving from His face.


Trust the Eternal, and repent in meekness

Of that heart’s pride which frowns and will not yield,

Then to thy child-heart shall come strength in weakness,

And thine immortal life shall be revealed.


Words by William McKenzie
