Christ My Song - 1201

Lord, I put my trust in thee
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Lord, I put my trust in thee.

"In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust,
let me never be put to confusion." (Psalm 71,1)

1. Lord, I put my trust in thee,
  never let me know confusion;
many dangers round I see,
  guard my soul from all delusion:
thou hast brought me from the track
  down to death eternal leading;
Satan fain would bring me back,
  O prevent him from succeeding.

2. Satan, eager to devour,
  wanders like a roaring lion,
glad to get within its power
  any of the sons of Zion:
many souls the foe has found,
  and by stratagem destroyed them;
many snares he spreads abroad,
  Saviour, teach me to avoid them.

3. O my God, my soul would cleave
  only to thy word of promise;
'tis by this thy people live,
  nor can Satan wrest it from us:
"I will never leave my own,"
  word of sov'reign consolation!
This shall be my stay alone,
  this my trust in all temptation.

4. Armed with this, I face the foe,
  and defy his opposition;
'tis the Lord will bring me through,
  'spite of hostile coalition:
now let earth and hell combine,
  calm I view their preparation,
since the strength of God is mine,
  since the Lord is my salvation.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 169.
