What You Began


What You began You will finish
By Your strong hand I will prevail
Every trial You work in it
And Your faithfulness can’t fail
Though I do not claim to understand
The mysteries of Your sovereign plan
I know the good work You began
You will finish

You are the One who works
in ways I cannot grasp
You are the One who knows
My prayers before I ask
Why should I doubt You
When without You I’d be lost
When I am tossed on the sea
You bring me back to the land
And what You began

You are the One who will work
All things for my good
You are the One who guards
My path before I look
Why should I try to walk
By sight and not by faith
Lord give me the grace to have
A childlike trust in Your plan
And what You began
