Hymn/Song Information

Almighty Maker Lord of all Of life the




Almighty Maker! Lord of all!
Of life the only spring!
Creator of unnumbered worlds!
Supreme, eternal King!


Drive from the confines of my heart
Impenitence and pride;
Nor let me, in forbidden paths,
With thoughtless sinners glide.


Whate’er thine all-discerning eye
Sees for thy creature fit,
I’ll bless the good, and to the ill
Contentedly submit.


With generous pleasure let me view
The prosperous and the great;
Malignant envy let me fly,
And odious self-conceit.


Let not despair, nor fell revenge,
Be to my bosom known:
Oh! give me tears for other’s woes,
And patience for my own.


Feed me with necessary food:
I ask not wealth or fame:
Give me an eye to see thy will,
A heart to bless thy name.


May still my days serenely pass,
Without remorse or care;
And growing holiness my soul
For life’s last hour prepare.
