The governing hand of God
Traversing the universe wide
Can calm the wildest storms abroad
While standing by my side!
The discerning Eye in heavenly portals
Who watches all by day and night
Can see the trials of us mere mortals
Viewing His creatures with encompassing sight
The swelling heart of our Heavenly Monarch
Reigning with His powerful Arm
Will lead His children from the dark
And protect us from the threat of harm
Why would one search for any safety
In another port or fortress?
The Heavenly Father faithfully
Makes and offers and gives us rest!
