“What God Hath Given,” New Era, July 1981, 18–19

In Tune:

What God Hath Given

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.
