Some trust in chariots, in winning their wars,
Some trust in ladders, in opening doors.
Some trust in horses, cars, fancy flights,
Some trust in fighting, reaching new heights.
Some trust in kind words, embraces and praise,
Comforts and pleasures to fill in their days.
I once trusted in degrees, prestige, fame,
Now I will trust in one steadfast name.
I will trust in one love alone,
That thought me precious, worth being His own.
I will trust and respond to my call,
That I may well stumble, but never will fall,
That I may be flooded, but never will drown,
That I may feel fire but never burn down.
Though my heart may be heavy, the burden is light;
Former things gone, new hope in sight.
When? Where? How? Show me the way,
That I may trust in your promise today.
Based on Psalm 20 and Isaiah 43
