I cannot change the yesterday when I distrusted
Though all my fears unfounded proved, and shame me now as then;
cannot promise that my faith will last throughout the night,
Or that, when
Thy tomorrow comes, I will not doubt again.
But grant, O faithful
Lord and true, that I may trust Thee now,
Just now, each moment of each
hour of this Thy present day;
That, looking backward, I may read the record
of the past,
And, forward, see Thy steadfast word light all the future way.
Memory to guard the rear and Faith to lead the van,
And all Thy tested promises
like beacon lights to shine,
How can I dread that demon shape of anxious, faithless
For he shall lose his power when I fully trust in Thine.
Philippians 4:6 Be careful for
nothing; but in every
thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known unto God.
