Hymn/Song Information

The swift not always in the race Shall




The swift not always in the race
Shall seize the crowning prize;
Not always wealth and honour grace
The labour of the wise.


Fond mortals but themselves beguile
When on themselves they rest:
Blind is their wisdom, weak their toil,
By thee, O lord, unblest.


Evil and good before thee stand,
Thy missions to perform;
The blessing comes at thy command,
At thy command the storm.


O Lord, in all our ways we’ll own
Thy providential power,
Intrusting to thy care alone
The lot of every hour.
