1 Give to the winds thy fears;
hope, and be undismayed.
God hears thy sighs and counts thy tears;
God shall lift up thy head.
2 Through waves and clouds and storms
God gently clears the way.
Wait patiently; so shall this night
soon end in joyous day.
3 Leave to God's sovereign sway
to choose and to command.
So shalt thou, wondering, own God's way,
how wise, how strong God's hand!
4 Let us in life, in death,
thy steadfast truth declare,
and publish with our final breath
thy love and guardian care.
