God Maketh No Mistake.


A.M. Overton (1932)
A retired pastor, who lost his beloved wife,
wrote this incredible poem during her funeral service.
Lyrics slightly modernized by Adrian Vermeulen-Miller.

Original Poem:

He Maketh No Mistakes!
My Father’s way may twist and turn,
my heart may throb and ache.
But in my soul I’m glad I know,
He maketh no mistake.
My cherished plans may go astray,
my hopes may fade away,
but still I’ll trust my Lord to lead,
for He doth know the way.
Tho’night be dark and it may seem
that day will never break;
I’ll pin my faith, my all in Him,
He maketh no mistake.
There’s so much now I cannot see,
my eyesight’s far too dim;
but come what may, I’ll simply trust
and leave it all to Him.
For by and by the mist will lift
and plain it all He’ll make.
Through all the way, tho’dark to me,
He made not one mistake. Thank you to New Hope Music for letting me post this.
