Christ My Song - 2076
In the Lord put I my trust - Trust
(John S. B. Monsell/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
"The Lord is on my side; I will not fear:
what can man do unto me?" (Psalm 118,6)
2. He may chasten and correct,
but he never can neglect;
may in faithfulness reprove,
but he ne'er can cease to love.
3. While in him my trust is true,
fear not I what man can do,
joy and health with me abide
while the Lord is on my side.
4. Thou my God art – I will praise
all thy goodness, all my days,
I will even for thy rod
thank thee, for thou art my God!
5. Though thou slay me I will trust,
praise thee, even from the dust,
prove, and tell it as I prove,
thine unutterable Love.
6. Therefore I the world defy,
while thy hand and heart are nigh;
now, O Lord, my helper be,
send us now prosperity.
John S. B. Monsell, Hymns of Love and Praise, 1877, 104-105.
