O Thou whose bounty fills our cup With every




O Thou, whose bounty fills our cup
With every blessing meet!
We give Thee thanks for every drop,
The bitter and the sweet.


We thank Thee for the desert road,
And for the river side;
For all Thy goodness has bestowed,
And all Thy grace denied.


We thank Thee for the smile and frown,
And for the gain and loss;
We bless Thee for the future crown,
And for the present cross.


We thank Thee for the wing of love,
Which stirred my worldly nest;
And for the stormy clouds which drove
The flutterer to Thy breast.


We bless Thee for the glad increase,
And for the waning joy;
And for the calm and settled peace
Which nothing can destroy.

O Thou, whose bounty fills my cup
With every blessing meet!
I give Thee thanks for every drop,
The bitter and the sweet.


I praise thee for the desert road,
And for the river side;
For all Thy goodness has bestowed,
And all Thy grace denied.


I thank Thee for the smile and frown,
And for the gain and loss;
I praise Thee for the future crown,
And for the present cross.


I thank Thee for the wing of love,
Which stirred my worldly nest;
And for the stormy clouds which drove
Me, trembling, to thy breast.


I bless Thee for the glad increase,
And for the waning joy;
And for this strange, this settled peace
Which nothing can destroy.
