1 Commit your way to God the Lord
your cause will shine as bright as fire;
delight to do God's holy word
and you shall find what you desire.

2 Be still before the Lord and wait,
and do not fret when wrong succeeds;
refrain from anger, turn from hate,
for God will punish evil deeds.

3 Salvation comes from God alone
the faithful know their help is sure;
to heaven all our needs are known,
and in God's strength we are secure.

4 Commit your way to God the Lord,
to peace and truth and grace aspire:
then mercy shall be your reward,
God's promises your heart's desire.

After Psalm 37, Michael Perry (1942 - 1996)
