my FATHER makes no mistakes


my FATHER’s way may twist and turn,
my heart may throb and ache,

but in my soul,

i’m glad to know,

HE makes no mistakes

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,

though the night be dark and it may seem,
that day will never break,

i’ll pin my faith, my all in HIM,

HE makes no mistake,

there’s so much now i cannot see,
my eyesight’s far too dim,

but come what may,

i’ll simply trust,
and leave it all to HIM,

or by and by the mist will lift,
and plain it all HE’ll make,

through all the way,

though dark to me,

HE made not one mistake

A.M. Overton, 1932
