Secret of our Savior

"What man is he that feareth the LORD?  Him shall He teach in the way that He shall choose… The secret of the LORD is with them that fear Him; and He will show them His covenant" (Psalm 25:12,14).  "Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid… But when he [Peter] saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me… Jesus stretched forth His hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?" (Matthew 14:27-31). 

The one who fears the Lord will find
The secret of our Lord and Savior
Through counsel that instructs our mind
With comfort that assures His favor. 

There is no cause for us to fear
The raging seas and storms of life,
For Jesus calms us by His cheer
With peace that stills our inward strife. 

At times our eyes may tend to wander
To circumstances round about,
But Christ then gently bids us ponder
The foolishness that caused our doubt. 

O Lord our Savior and our Friend,
The secret counsel You impart
Has taught us daily to depend
On You alone with all our heart.
