Author: Paul Gerhardt, 1656
Scripture: Psalm 37:5-7 Psalms 56
Theme: God

1.  Give to the winds thy fears;
    Hope and be undismayed:
    God hears thy sighs and counts thy tears,
    God shall lift up thy head.

2.  Through waves and clouds and storms
    God gently clears thy way;
    Wait patiently; so shall this night
    Soon end in joyous day.

3.  Leave to God's sovereign sway
    To choose and to command;
    So shalt thou, wondering, own God's way,
    How wise, how strong God's hand!

4.  On God the Lord rely,
    And safe shalt thou go on;
    Fix on God's work thy steadfast eye,
    So shall thy work be done.
