296 (L.M.) John Newton

Why, O my soul, these anxious cares?

Why thus cast down with doubts and fears?

How canst thou want if God provide,

Or lose thy way with such a Guide?

When first before His mercy seat

Thou didst to Him thy all commit,

He gave thee warrant from that hour,

To trust His wisdom, love, and power.

Did ever trouble yet befall,

And He refuse to hear thy call?

And has He not His promise passed

That thou shalt overcome at last?

He who has helped me hitherto

Will help me all my journey through,

And give me daily cause to raise

New Ebenezers to His praise.
