SUBMISSION




O Lord, my best desire fulfill
And help me to resign,
Life, health, and comfort to thy will,
And make thy pleasure mine.


Why should I shrink at thy command,
Whose love forbids my fears?
Or tremble at the gracious hand
That wipes away my tears?


No, let me rather freely yield
What most I prize to thee;
Who never hast a good withheld,
Or wilt withhold from me.


Thy favour, all my journey through,
Thou art engaged to grant;
What else I want, or think I do,
íTis better still to want.


Wisdom and mercy guide my way,
Shall I resist them both?
A poor blind creature of a day,
And crushed before the moth!


But ah! my inward spirit cries,
Still bind me to thy sway;
Else the next cloud that veils my skies,
Drives all these thoughts away.


---Alternative verses---


Wisdom and mercy guide my way,
Shall I resist them both?
Short-sighted creature of a day,
And crushed before the moth!
