From Today's Morning Offering

Alone with none but thee, my God,

I journey on my way.

What need I fear, when thou art near,

O King of night and day?

More safe am I within thy hand,

Than if a host did round me stand.

 

My destined time is fixed by thee,

And death doth know his hour.

Did warriors strong around me throng,

They could not stay his power;

No walls of stone can man defend

When thou thy messenger dost send.

 

My life I yield to thy decree,

And bow to thy control

In peaceful calm, for from thine arm

No power can wrest my soul.

Could earthly omens e’er appal

A man that heeds the heavenly call!

 

The child of God can fear no ill,

His chosen dread no foe;

We leave our fate with thee, and wait

Thy bidding when to go.

‘Tis not from chance our comfort springs,

Thou art our trust, O King of kings.
