RESIGNATION




My times of sorrow and of joy,
Great God, are in Thy hand.
My chief enjoyments
come from Thee,
And go at Thy command.


Oh Lord shouldst thou
withhold them all,
Yet would I not repine;
Before they were
by me possessed,
They were entirely Thine.


Nor would I drop
a murmuring word,
If all the world were gone,
But seek substantial happiness
In Thee, and Thee alone.


What is the world
with all its store?
’Tis but a bitter sweet;
When I attempt to pluck the rose
A pricking thorn I meet.


Here perfect bliss
can ne’er be found,
The honey’s mixed with gall;
Midst changing scenes
and dying friends,
Be Thou my all in all.


---Alternative verses---


My times of sorrow and of joy,
Great God, are in Thy hand.
My choicest comforts
come from Thee,
And go at Thy command.


If Thou shouldst
take them all away,
Yet would I not repine;
Before they were
possessed by me,
They were entirely Thine.


Nor would I drop
a murmuring word,
Though the whole
world were gone,
But seek enduring happiness
In Thee, and Thee alone.
