Verse 1
I need not lack for inward power
To live a righteous life;
For God is with me
Every hour to help me in the strife,

Chorus
O that I might fully trust Him!
For I know that He is nigh;
He will never leave me helpless
All my needs He will supply

Verse 2
I need not lack for friendship true,
For Jesus is my friend;
Though other friends are sometimes few,
He loves us to the end

Chorus
O that I might fully trust Him!
For I know that He is nigh;
He will never leave me helpless
All my needs He will supply

Verse 3
I need not lack for joy sublime,
His joy remains in me;
Earths pleasure last but for a time,
His last eternally

Chorus
O that I might fully trust Him!
For I know that He is nigh;
He will never leave me helpless
All my needs He will supply

Verse 4
I need not lack for anything,
For God is all in all;
And so each day His praise I sing,
And on His name I call

Chorus
O that I might fully trust Him!
For I know that He is nigh;
He will never leave me helpless
All my needs He will supply
