He is Faithful

The following poem/hymn was posted on our sister site, PILGRIM PALS, recently. I don't know who penned these powerful lyrics but they certainly encouraged me. - David

Praise the Lord, and leave to-morrow
In thy loving Father’s hands;
Burden not thyself with sorrow,
For secure the promise stands.
He is faithful!
Leave thy troubles in His hands.

Trust to-day, and leave to-morrow,
Each day has enough of care;
Therefore, whatso’er thy burden,
God will give thee strength to bear.
He is faithful!
Cast on Him thine every care.

Pray to-day, and let to-morrow,
Bring with it whate’er it may;
Hear thy loving Father promise
Strength according to thy day.
He is faithful!
Trust Him therefore, come what may.

Watch to-day, and leave to-morrow,
For to-morrow may not come;
Ever to-day thy loving Saviour
May appear to take thee home.
He is faithful!
Look for Him, the coming One.

Work to-day, and leave to-morrow;
All around there’s urgent need;
All around there’s sin and sorrow;
Broadcast, daily sow thy seed.
God is faithful!
He shall bless thy work indeed.

This by trusting, watching, praying,
Each day, as our time rolls on,
We shall find the promised blessing,
Daily strength till Jesus come.
He is faithful!
He will come to take us home.


  1. that is INDEED encouraging ... and just getting home from the funeral for my 47 year old cousin - well the words ring especially true ...

    thank you for praying for me while i was away ... the Lord was a most excellent Travel Agent!

  2. Loved this, David. Amen! He is faithful.
