The Assurance of God by Raymond A. Foss

The assurance of God
contentment sublime
all contained in these psalm of old
So much we forget
of his faithfulness yet
his steadfast love
endures for all time

The rich man in the story
the tale of our age
all seeing assurance
in the things of this earth
Our hand is not enough
our sweat will ever fail us

Trust alone in the Lord
he is our source and our strength
Our cup runneth over
goodness and mercy pursuing us
beside us, with us, his spirit
with us, all of our days

His is our shepherd,
in him we can trust
laying down our cares, our worries
knowing he will provide
Focus instead on serving our neighbor
lifting up the last, the least, the lost
sharing the good news
