Stanza Poetry Source by First Line
My spirit looks to God alone,
My rock and refuge is His throne.
In all my fears, in all my straits,
My soul on His salvation waits.

MY Spirit looks to God alone;, Stanza 1
Trust Him, ye saints, in all your ways,
Pour out your hearts before His face;
When helpers fail and foes invade,
God is our all-sufficient aid.

MY Spirit looks to God alone;, Stanza 2
