I believe you, God, for every good and perfect gift;
For doubting that would cause me to be adrift
On the devil’s sea of unbelief,
With its dangerous waters and treacherous reef.
Your yoke is easy and Your burden is light.
I believe Your Word and reject any fright.
You’ve promised to shepherd me each new day–
With Your rod and Your staff, You’ll lead the way.
You’re the Light of the World, I can’t go wrong–
I can do all things in Him Who makes me strong.
Strong I am, and it’s easy to receive–
For You have said, just pray and believe.
Your help is sure, and You’ve said I can command
Judgment on the adversary from Your mighty hand!
P. A. Oltrogge
