Composer: Trans. John Wesley, 1739; alt. Samuel Howard, 1762; alt.
Author: Paul Gerhardt, 1656
Scripture: Psalm 37:5-7 Psalms 56
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.
