Trust His Heart

God is too wise to be mistaken, God is too good to be unkind, So when you don't understand, When you don't see His plan, When you can't trace His hand, Trust His heart. These words were popularized in 1989 by Christian singer-songwriter Babbie Mason and are sometimes credited to Charles Spurgeon. Scroll to bottom of post to hear her sing this beautiful song.

Babbie Yvett Robie Wade Mason  was born February 1, 1955. She is an American gospel singer, songwriter, writer, and adjunct professor of songwriting at Point University and Lee University, and also a television talk-show host. Mason's father was a Baptist pastor and she hails from at least five generations of ministers. Mason has also been the church pianist and choir director for the church her father pastored. source


Babbie Mason with Eddie Carswell wrote “Trust His Heart”. In an interview, Mason said the song was influenced by a North Atlanta pastor who “became inspired by the words that Charles Haddon Spurgeon had coined in his writings, ‘God is too wise to be mistaken. God is too good to be unkind. And, when you can’t trace His hand, you can always trust His heart.’”

Similar quotes are found in The One Year Daily Insights with Zig Ziglar and The Lucado Life Lessons Study Bible.

Spurgeon’s actual wording is found in his sermon “A Happy Christian”:


The worldling blesses God while he gives him plenty, but the Christian blesses him when he smites him: he believes him to be too wise to err and too good to be unkind; he trusts him where he cannot trace him, looks up to him in the darkest hour, and believes that all is well.source


Trust His Heart
Babbie Mason

All things work for our good 
Though sometimes we don't see how they could
Struggles that break our hearts in two 
Sometimes blind us to the truth
Our Father knows what best for us
His ways are not our own
So when your pathway grows dim 
And you just don't see Him 
Remember you're never alone

God is too wise to be mistaken 
God is too good to be unkind 
So when you don't understand 
When you don't see His plan 
When you can't trace His hand 
Trust His heart
Trust His heart

He sees the master plan 
And He holds our future in His hand 
So don't live as those who have no hope 
All our hope is found in Him 
We see the present clearly 
But He sees the first and the last 
And like a tapestry 
He's weaving you and me 
To someday be just like Him 

God is too wise to be mistaken 
God is too good to be unkind 
So when you don't understand 
When you don't see His plan 
When you can't trace His hand 
Trust His heart
Trust His heart

He alone is faithful and true 
He alone knows what is best for you

God is too wise to be mistaken 
God is too good to be unkind 
So when you don't understand 
When you don't see His plan 
When you can't trace His hand 
Trust His heart
Trust His heart

When you don't understand 
When you don't see His plan 
When you can't trace His hand 
Trust His heart
Trust His heart
