‘O! For a Perfect Trust’

O! for the peace of a perfect trust,
My loving God, in Thee;
Unwavering faith that never doubts
Thou choosiest best for me.

Best, though my plans be all upset;
Best though my way be rough;
Best, though my earthly store be scant;
In Thee I have enough.

Best, though my health and strength be gone;
Though weary days be mine;
Shut out from much that others have;
Not my will, Lord, but Thine.

And e’en though disappointments come,
They, too, are best for me
To wean me from this changing world
And lead me nearer Thee.

O! for the peace of a perfect trust,
That looks away from all;
That sees Thy hand in everything,
In great events and small.

That hears Thy voice — a Father’s voice —
Directing for the best —
O! for the peace of a perfect trust,
A heart with Thee at rest.

‘You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.’
– Isaiah 26:3
