Lord it belongs not to my care Whether I




Lord, it belongs not to my care
Whether I die or live;
To love and serve Thee is my share,
And this Thy grace must give.


If life be long, I will be glad,
That I may long obey;
If short, yet why should I be sad
To welcome endless day?


Christ leads me through no darker rooms
Than He went through before;
He that unto Godís kingdom comes
Must enter by this door.


Come, Lord, when grace hath made me meet
Thy blessťd face to see;
For if Thy work on earth be sweet
What will Thy glory be!


Then I shall end my sad complaints
And weary sinful days,
And join with the triumphant saints
That sing my Saviourís praise.


My knowledge of that life is small,
The eye of faith is dim;
But ítis enough that Christ knows all,
And I shall be with Him.


---Alternative verses---


If life be long, I will be glad,
That I may long obey;
If short, yet why should I be sad
To soar to endless day?


Christ leads me through no darker rooms
Than He went through before;
No one into his kingdom comes†
But through his opened door.†


Then I shall end my sad complaints
And weary sinful days,
And join with the triumphant saints
Who sing my Saviourís praise.


Then I shall end my sad complaints
And weary sinful days,
And join with all triumphant saints
Who sing Jehovah's praise.
