When we trust in ourselves
And in our capabilities,
There’s only so far that we can go
When breakthroughs we do see.
When we place trust in our careers
And in our finances too,
We can be thoroughly disappointed
When everything falls through.
When we place trust in certain people
And although they may wish well,
There may come a time they’ll disappoint
And heartache this may spell.
Because when we lean on the flesh
With our independence too,
We can become proud of our achievements
And exclude God from all we do.
But there may come a time
Where our world comes crashing down,
Where there’s monumental loss
And where friends are nowhere to be found.
But when we trust in God
And convey our heart to Him,
There is safety and there’s surety
With a joy and peace within.
Because He will never forsake us
Or disappoint us too,
But will work all things for our good
To guide in all we do.
When we trust in Jesus
We honour the sacrifice He made;
Whilst remembering the depth of His love
When His life for us He gave.
To trust in God is honourable
Since He is our Heavenly Father;
Our comforter and our deliverer
For now and ever-after.
