Fear not, beloved, go calmly on - Led Safely
(Hannah K. Burlingham/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Led Safely.

"What man is he that feareth the Lord? Him shall he teach in the way he shall choose." (Psalm 25,12)

1. Fear not, beloved, go calmly on,
  God chooseth out thy way;
full smoothly hath his sunlight shone
  upon thy path today.
Acquaint thyself the more with him,
  and be the more "at peace,"
till, running o’er thy cruse’s brim,
  the oil of joy increase.

2. When every cup is drainèd dry,
  which thou hast sought to drink,
then God shall richer grace supply
  than thou canst ask or think.
He turns the vessels upside down,
  to shew how frail they be,
ere he thine expectation crown
  from love’s exhaustless sea!

3. Be not dismayed, for evermore
  thy God thy steps will guide;
the desert need will soon be o’er:
  the Lord doth still provide.
No, never thee the Lord will leave;
  no, never thee forsake;
no, he who "sinners" doth receive,
  the saints his care doth make.

4. Rejoice, beloved! though all around
  should bid thy soul to weep;
the jewels that the Lord hath found,
  trust thou the Lord to keep.
His special treasure soon shall shine
  in resurrection light;
thou living God! the Day is thine!
  thine also is the Night.

Hannah K. Burlingham, Wayside Songs, 1901, 141-142.
