Be My Rock
Cast your cares on your eternal Father,
give your future over to your Lord.
Heavy hearted? Would you not rather,
have the love of Jesus Christ on board?
Heav'nly peace your portion, ever restful,
yes, ‘t is He Who all your sorrows mends.
Life in Him is always more joyful,
just the thought that you are in His hands.
Pray to Him and talk to Him without fear,
‘t is on Him you ever can depend.
In your trials, know Him to be near,
as your Shepherd, He will understand.
Lord, give me Your peace in daily living,
filled with Your joy facing each new day.
You be my Rock in guidance giving,
You the Potter, let me be the clay.
Grant me Lord Your peace now, never ending,
so I’ll know my daily path down here.
Send Your Spirit on me descending,
I can face the future with You near.
After a hymn by Johannes de Heer.
English text, a paraphrase in part: Adrian Vermeulen-Miller.
