This year I lost my confidence
      In God; His love, His care,
So that I stumbled on the path—
      My helpmeet was Despair.

I seemed to hear a gentle voice
      That bid me look on high
To see the jagged, rugged path
      Was leading to the sky.

Lift up, lift up your confidence
      And see your God above.
The storms, the trials, the tragedies
      He reigneth, child with love.
