Trust in God (John 14:1; NLT).

1. Trust in God,
For he is perfect,
And his mercy
Is supreme.

2. Trust in God,
Who sent his perfect Son
To teach us,
And redeem.

3. Trust in God,
Whose perfect Spirit
Comes to free us
From all sin.

4. Trust in God,
For he is perfect.
And our task?
To grow like him.

I walk by faith

1. Lord,
I walk by faith,
Not sight.
I hear no voice;
I see no light.

Please help me, Father –
Take my hand,
And lead me
To your Promised Land.

2. Lord,
I live by faith,
Not sight.
I walk, alone,
Through endless night.

Please help me, Father –
Guide my feet,
And lead me to
Your Mercy Seat.

🖤
