    It is the Lord! enthroned in light,
    Whose works are all divine,
    Who hath an everlasting right
    To govern me and mine.


    It is the Lord! should I distrust
    Or contradict his will,
    Who cannot do what is unjust,
    Who must be righteous still?


    It is the Lord! who gives me all,
    My wealth, my friends, my ease,
    And of his bounties may recall
    Whatever part he please,


    It is the Lord! who can sustain
    Beneath the heaviest load;
    From whom I may assistance gain,
    To tread the thorny road.


    It is the Lord! whose wondrous skill
    Can, from afflictions, raise
    Matter eternity to fill
    With ever-growing praise.


    It is the Lord, my faithful God,--
    Thrice blessed be his name,--
    Whose gracious promise, seal'd with blood,
    Must ever be the same.


    And can my soul with hopes like these
    Be sullen, or repine?
    No, gracious God, take what thou please,
    To thee I all resign.


    ---Alternative verses---


    It is the Lord, enthron'd in light
    Whose claims are all divine,
    Who has an undisputed right
    To govern me and mine.


    And can my soul, with hopes like these,
    Be faithless, or repine?
    No, gracious God; take what thou please,
    To thee I all resign.
