Perfect Love

Oh can Thy word still be fulfilled
With fear my courage has been stilled

Oh can Thy word still be fulfilled
With fear my courage has been stilled
I cannot hope - I cannot see
How Thou canst make it true for me

Ah, “Perfect Love” cannot instill
Fears, doubts beneath His sovereign will
It knows His word can never fail
Despite the storms - it does not quail

Ah Lord, a loved one went astray
Alone, I cry, in deep dismay
Can Thou o’ercome my wounded grief
Can he repent, I find relief?

My child, when hearts do still my voice
And turn from Me and make their choice
Their pleasure will be bitter - gall
Twixt Me and them - sin’s dreadful wall

My Word will fall upon their way
To call them out of sin’s dark sway
But you - dear hurt and flound’ring one
Must lean more heavily on God’s Son

My love is there to comfort you
My peace will bid you hope anew
My Faith that points to Heaven at last
When tears are gone and sorrows past.
