When I go through life’s flood and flame
And have my share of shock and shame,
I’ll rest in God, His praises I’ll proclaim,
My faithful father will acclaim His name.
A thousand may fall at my side
and ten thousands in hunger may subside.
I’ll rest in God whatever may betide.
My faithful father will provide and guide.
My earthly friends may easily neglect
In peace and joy, wars may interject
I’ll rest in God and to Him I’ll connect
My faithful father will direct and protect.
When sinful pleasures become addictive
When help and hope get too expensive,
I’ll rest in God and remain positive,
My faithful father will forgive and give.
My painful past may keep me in despair
Sins and sorrow may my soul ensnare
I’ll rest in God and His word I’ll declare
My faithful father is always there to care.
