Because I Trust

Because I trust upon you, Lord, I hope that you’re protectin’.

You’ll teach and guide me in your ways and save, ‘cause I’m expectin’.

Remember, Lord, your steadfast love, your ancient ways of mercy.

Forget MY own more recent sin, be faithful to YOUR hist’ry.


You’re good, you teach us humble folk the ways that we should go in.

You pardon people like myself who “better” should be knowin’.

So we and our posterity will flourish in your presence 

And keep our eyes upon you Lord, when rescue is of essence.


So turn to me with lavish grace. I’m lonely and afflicted.

Relieve my trouble, bring me out of what’s on me inflicted.

My enemies are many and their hate I’m not deservin’.

You’ll guard my life, for I’m upright. Your servant needs preservin’.

  1. Hi!

    I read through all the songs as the arrive each day. This one stands out to me. Maybe because I often read Psalm 25 and use its words as I pray.

    Blessings, Ted
