Dear Lord, I have a prayer to offer
For the future, which I fear;
Please visit me with calm assurance
Your love is ever near.
When evil seems to triumph
And good seems not to sway
I rest my faith in you, Oh Lord
To sweep what’s bad away.
No man can ever change a thing;
All hope is in you, Lord,
Please help events that are to come
To be in your accord;
And Lord if yours is not my way,
Help me to understand
That whatever may befall me here,
My soul is in your hands.
