In God I Trust

in God, I trust and forever be
…for in thine eyes,
the goodness he will see
…let his spirit in my soul to dwell
…for all the pains thus bade farewell

it’s you my lord, a hand to hold
a grip so tight, it’s you I behold
this soul of mortality
seeks your love and serenity

I keep myself in solitude
with all my pains, yet in gratitude
when I give you all my trust
I offer my life ashes and dust

in your presence of immortality
I gave myself in your loves infinity
your truth I preserve and comprehend
in every imperfection, I don’t pretend

I trust you lord with all your wisdom
I beg for shelter in your kingdom
my lord accept my humble soul
I am me, my life for you to control

    Rhythmic, melodious, philosophical and optimistic.
    Let me quote the lovely lines :
    “the goodness he will see
    …let his spirit in my soul to dwell
    …for all the pains thus bade farewell”
