He Maketh No Mistake

My Father’s way may twist and turn My heart may throb and ache, But in my soul I’m glad to know, He maketh no mistake.

My cherished plans may go astray, My hopes may fade away, But still I’ll trust my Lord to lead, For He doth know the way.

Tho’ night be dark and it may seem That day will never break, I’ll pin my faith, my all, in Him, He maketh no mistake.

He maketh no mistake There’s so much now I cannot see, My eyesight far too dim, But come what may, I’ll simply trust and leave it all to Him.

For by and by the mist will lift, And plain it all He’ll make, Through all the way, tho’ dark to me, He made not one mistake.

[A.M. Overton 1932]

2 Samuel 22:31 ... As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.

Romans 8:28 ... And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. ♥
