THE LORD GAVE AND THE LORD HATH TAKEN AWAY



eHymnBook # 12598
Title:
THE LORD GAVE AND THE LORD HATH TAKEN AWAY
First Line:
It is the Lord enthroned in light Whose works are

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 covenant God,
Thrice blessed be his name,
Whose gracious promise, seal'd with blood,
Must ever be the same.


Can I, with hopes so firmly built,
Be sullen, or repine?
No, gracious God, take what thou wilt,
To thee I all resign.


---Alternative verses---


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


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


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


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