His Love Can Never Fail

As I mentioned in my previous post, I had the blessing to sing songs with brothers and sisters this evening.

This song blew me away:

His Love Can Never Fail

1. I do not ask to see the way
My feet will have to tread;
But only that my soul may feed
Upon the living Bread.
'Tis better far that I should walk
By faith close to His side;
I may not know the way I go, But oh, I know my Guide.

Refrain
His love can never fail, His love can never fail,
My soul is satisfied to know His love can never fail.
My soul is satisfied to know His love can never fail.

2. And if my feet would go astray,
They cannot, for I know
That Jesus guides my falt'ring steps,
As joyfully I go.
And tho' I may not see His face,
My faith is strong and clear,
That in each hour of sore distress
My Savior will be near.
Refrain

3. I will not fear, tho' darkness come
Abroad o'er all the land,
If I may only feel the touch
Of His own loving hand.
And tho' I tremble when I think
How weak I am, and frail,
My soul is satisfied to know
His love can never fail.
Refrain

I long for this type of faith. As someone very aptly remarked when presented with the lyrics, too often we come to God begging for answers, "God, just let me know what I should do. God, I need help with this." Certainly, those requests aren't wrong in themselves, but this song challenges us right there. Are we content with what God has revealed? If He is silent, would we be ok with that?
I do not ask to see the way
My feet will have to tread;
But only that my soul may feed
Upon the living Bread.
'Tis better far that I should walk
By faith close to His side;
I may not know the way I go, But oh, I know my Guide.
My God and my Lord! Give me this faith! Give me this trust! That I would follow You, through darkness and through light, trusting You because You are my sure Guide!
And tho' I tremble when I think
How weak I am, and frail,
My soul is satisfied to know
His love can never fail.
