Sometimes Along Our Journey Here

Sometimes along our journey here
Our Father’s voice we scarce can hear;
It seems that clouds His face do mask:
“What shall we do?” we trembling ask?
Just simply trust,
Just simply trust.

When gloom increaseth day by day,
Our souls unlit by heavenly ray;
When sweet communion with the Lord
Has ceased, we cannot love His Word.
Then we should trust,
Then we should trust.

Yes, trust in every hour of need;
In bondage trust we shall be freed;
He makes the crooked places straight,
And opens every heavy gate.
If we will trust,
If we will trust.
