VERSE 1:
Give to the winds your fears,
In Hope be undismayed,
God knows your needs and sees your tears,
God shall lift up your head.
Through waves and clouds and storms
He gently clears the way;
wait for His time! The night shall quickly end in joyous day.

VERSE 2:
Far, far above your thoughts
His wisdom shall appear,
When he has finished His design
That caused your needless fear.
Leave to His sovereign will to choose and to command;
in wonder you shall come to see how wise, how strong His hand!

VERSE 3:
You see our weakness, Lord,
Our hearts are known to You;
put wings beneath our weary feet and keep our pathway true!
Let us, in life or death, Your changeless truth declare, and utter with our final breath Your love and guiding care.
