Our Trust

Why should we fear, when God is All,
Can He be more than Love?
Will He forget, or let us fall,
His own, His treasure trove?
All nature lives in Love divine,
And every flower, that grows
In sweet and fragrant loveliness,
God's thought, on us bestows.

"As mountains round Jerusalem"
His people, guardeth He:
'Tis Truth and Love, that keepeth them,
In health and purity.
"In pastures green" His sheep are fed,
Nor aught of terror know,
Peacefully by the Shepherd led
Where quiet waters flow.

When Truth appears, all error flies,
As darkness 'fore the light,
And joy succeeds to grief and pain,
As day succeeds to night.
My heart, with rapture rests in God;
Amid earth's toil and strife;
To know no fear, content with Him,
This, is eternal life.
