When the way is dark…Posted: April 19, 2011
…and all’s unclear,
When stormy chaos ushers in fear,
When He, my Lord, seems far away,
I will find my Anchor stays.
For He alone knows the way that I take
and He alone can make no mistake.
When He has tried me, I’ll come forth as gold,
for His word says His riches unfold
as I trust in the Heart that birthed redemption’s plan
and rest in the Savior’s nail scarred Hands.
He knows the plans He has for me
when I am tossed about on stormy seas.
I can choose to fret and fear,
or I can choose to believe He’s near.
I may be in a hard place but I can still make a good choice: trust God.
