Amid the world’s confusion

MIDI File

Amid the world's confusion,

Scenes of complete despair,

Where truth is an illusion

And hatred everywhere.

Standing in all the chaos

A refuge can be heard.

Eternal voice, the Logos,

God's true and living Word.


We watch with sore emotion

The leaders we elect:

Masters of self-promotion,

Deceit and disrespect.

We turn unfilled to Jesus

Who, self-denying, died.

And in that death he frees us

To be his blood-bought bride.


The leaders of the nations

Rise under his command.

And all our generations

Are guided by his hand.

So let us trust our Saviour

To keep us day by day.

We live beneath his favour

And walk his sovereign way.
