So much is uncertain
You are a rock and a refuge
There is so much fear
You are a shelter and a comfort
We are assailed by doubt and grief:
Yours is the voice that stills the storm
Decisions to make, tasks to do
You are the source of wisdom.
We are easily overwhelmed
Your yoke is easy, your burden light.
Death seems close at hand
You were the end of death as the end.
