He Maketh No Mistake

My Father's way may twist and turn, my heart may throb and ache
But in my soul I'm glad I know, He maketh no mistake
My cherished plan may go astray, my hopes may fade away
But still I'll trust in my Lord to lead for He does know the way

There's so much now I cannot see, my eyesight far too dim
But come what may, I'll simply trust and leave it all to Him
For by and by the mist will lift and plain it all He'll make
Through all the way, tho' dark to me, He made not one mistake

My tears may fall as winter rain, His nearness yet I'll gain
He knows my need, He knows my name, He leads my heart to e're proclaim
Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on the Earth, as it is above
The water wanes, returns the dove, what guides His hand is perfect love

Tho' night be dark and it may seem
That day will never break,
I'll pin my faith, my all in Him
He maketh no mistake, He maketh no mistake

- A. M. Overton
