Hymn/Song Information

AUTHOR OF GOOD TO THEE WE TURN




Author of good, we rest in Thee;
Thine ever watchful eye
Alone our real wants can see,
Thy hand alone supply.


In Thine all-gracious providence
Our cheerful hopes confide;
O, let Thy power be our defence,
Thy love our footsteps guide!


And since, by passionís force subdued,
Too oft, with stubborn will,
We blindly shun the latent good,
And grasp the specious ill,ó


Not what we wish, but what we want,
Thy mercy still supply!
The good unasked, O Father, grant;
The ill, though asked, deny!

Alone our real wants can see,
Thy hand alone supply.


Not what we wish, but what we want,
Let mercy still supply!
The good unasked, O Father, grant;
The ill, though asked, deny!


Not what we wish, but what we want,
Let mercy still supply!
The good we ask not, Father, grant;
The ill we ask, deny!
