My soul is satified to know, His Love can never fail

The best hymns teach us. What is the ground of our assurance? Our ability to work or believe? How about:

His Love can Never Fail
by E.S. Hall

1. I do not ask to see the way
My feet will have to tread;

But only that my soul may feed
Upon the living Bread.
'Tis better far that I should walk
By faith close to His side;
I may not know the way I go,
But oh, I know my Guide.

2. And if my feet would go astray,
They cannot, for I know
That Jesus guides my falt'ring steps,

As joyfully I go.
And tho' I may not see His face,
My faith is strong and clear,
That in each hour of sore distress
My Savior will be near.

3. I will not fear, tho' darkness come
Abroad o'er all the land,
If I may only feel the touch
Of His own loving hand.
And tho' I tremble when I think
How weak I am, and frail,
My soul is satisfied to know
His love can never fail.
