View Lyrics
Lord, I gladly trust in You:
let me not be put to shame.
As I look up towards Your throne,
make Your gracious promise known;
God, my refuge and my hope,
Your protective care I claim.

In Your hands I place my past:
all my sins You know so well.
Your forgiveness, Lord, I need,
for my guilt is great indeed;
even greater is Your love—
mercy more than I can tell.

Teach me what is true and good;
let me hear and understand!
In the choices I must make,
show my heart the way to take,
so that I may always tread
on the path which You have planned.

When my troubles multiply,
You alone can bring me through:
so with all Your saints I say,
"Be my strength and shield today."
Since I know You hear my prayer,
Lord, I gladly trust in You.
