What God Hath Given

What God Hath Given

Music from the New Era

1. Today I stand and face my life.
So much I do not know.
But ev’ry where I go,
although I cannot see,
my Father walks with me;
he walks with me if I will listen.
I will listen;
I want to listen to him.

2. (He) is my God, and I believe
that I can conquer fear.
His promises are here
for me to lean upon.
I know I can’t go wrong.
I can’t go wrong if I will listen.
I will listen,
believe and listen to him.

Unhappiness, uncertainty
they crowd around my feet,
but they cannot defeat the things I want to be.
I hear his words to me.
My Father does not give to me
the spirit that is fear.
He draws me ever near
that I may feel his love,
grow strong, and rise above—
that in my darkest hour
my life will know the spirit of his pow’r.
