Read Psalm 55:16-23

from Chalice Hymnal (#565) by Georg Neumark (1657), translated by Catherine Winkworth (1863)

  1. If you will trust in God to guide you

and hope in God through all your ways,

God will give strength, whate’er betide you,

and bear you through the evil days.

Who trusts in God’s unchanging love

builds on the rock that will not move.


  1. Sing, pray, and keep God’s ways unswerving;

so do your own part faithfully,

and trust God’s word; though undeserving,

you’ll find God’s promise true to be.

God never will forsake in need

the soul that trusts in God indeed.
