Commit Now All Your Griefs

Commit thou all thy griefs

And ways into His hands;

To His sure truth and tender care,

Who earth and heav'n commands.

Who points the clouds their course,

Whom winds and seas obey,

He shall direct thy wandering feet,

He shall prepare thy way.

Give to the winds thy fears;

Hope, and be undismayed;

God hears thy sighs, and counts thy tears,

God shall lift up thy head.

What though thou rulest not?

Yet heav'n and earth and hell

Proclaim, God sitteth on the throne,

And ruleth all things well.

Leave to His sovereign sway

To choose and to command;

So shalt thou wond'ring own, His way

How wise, how strong His hand!
Paul Gerhardt and John Wesley

"Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this." Psalm 37:5
