I Trust in You by Gary R. Ferris
Lord Sometimes these trials are hard to take,

And I want them to end so my heart won’t ache.

I don’t know what You’re trying to do,

I only know that I trust in you.
My road has been long and very hard,

And has left my soul sorely scared.

I know You have a perfect will,

And sometimes I don’t know the deal.
But my heart is troubled and I don’t know,

Whether to stay or whether to go.

Sometimes I’m too blind to see,

Exactely what’s in store for me.
In the darkness I lie awake,

And wonder if I’ve made a mistake.

Why these troubles if I may ask,

And what’s ahead in my task.

Struggles and sorrow I have known,

Is it from the seeds I’ve sown?

Or are You simply guiding me,

To the place where I should be?
I don’t know which way to go,

From storms I’m tossed to and fro.

I don’t know which way is up,

I’m as scared as a newborn pup.
What will happen and when will it cease?

When will my soul be back at peace?

Your grace is sufficient everyday,

But for a speedy end I still pray.
I can not see with Your eyes,

All You do is a surprise.

Your mind and thoughts are not mine,

But I ask that You leave me not behind.

Show me peace and tenderly guide,

And make me not afraid and want to hide.

I don’t know what You are trying to do,

All I know is that I trust in You.
