God Worthy of Faith. L. M.
1. PRAISE, everlasting praise be paid
To Him who earth's foundations laid;
Praise to the God whose strong decrees
Sway the creation as he please.
2. Whence then should doubts and fears arise?
Why trickling sorrows drown our eyes?
Slowly, alas, the mind receives
The comforts that our Maker gives.
3. Oh for a strong, a lasting faith,
To credit what th' Almighty saith —
T' embrace the message of his Son,
And call the joys of heaven our own.
4. Then, should the earth's foundations shake,
And all the wheels of nature break,
Our steady souls shall fear no more
Than solid rocks when billows roar.
