Poetry: Have Faith in God - Mark 11:22


Have faith in God! for He who reigns on high
Knows well thy grief, and hears the suppliant’s cry;
Still to His arms, thine only refuge, fly.
Have faith in God!

Fear not to call on Him, O soul distressed!
Thy sorrow’s burden drives thee to His breast,
Have faith in God!

Lean not on human reeds; slake not thy thirst
At earthly cisterns, seek His kingdom first
Though man and Satan fright thee with their worst,
Have faith in God!

Go tell Him all. The sigh thy bosom heaves
Is heard in heaven. Strength and grace He gives
Who gave Himself for thee. Our Jesus lives.
Have faith in God!
