How sad when a testimony leads astray
Those led by it all the way.
Losing a leader causes fear.
“What if we have no one! Oh, Dear!”
We plot, discuss, and plan.
Our heart’s desire is to trust in man.
We place our faith in one man’s strength,
To provide, to fight, to be our defense.
We forget the God who gave us life,
Who saves us from our daily strife.
He nurtures, listens, and forgives.
We could never give back all He gives.
The One True King of all the earth
Has loved us from the day of our birth.
He is present and near, strong to lead.
He is capable of all we need.
May You find us faithful, Our Heavenly King.
We trust in You with everything.
