Confidence in Christ

"This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made He him... and he died" (Genesis 5:1,5).  "It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man" (Psalm 118:8).  "The LORD shall be thy confidence" (Proverbs 3:26).  "God... hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know His will... for thou shalt be His witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard" (Acts 22:14,15). 

The record found in Genesis
Regarding Adam testified
Throughout his generation this:
The way of man is that "he died."

How rightly then do we conclude
That it is better far to trust
In God than in a multitude
Of men who soon return to dust. 

The Lord shall be our Confidence,
Who died for us and rose again. 
Our Savior is our strong Defense;
Be done, therefore, with trusting men. 

O Christ, our Confidence and Savior,
You've chosen us to know Your will,  
So help us to declare Your favor
As we are trusting in You still.
