BEREAVING PROVIDENCES




Silence, oh my soul, thy Father
Guides the rod with gentle hand;
Still he loves, though he chastise thee,
Fruitless is it to withstand:
Yield submission
To his wise and just command.


Oh how short of sinís deserving
Are the strokes which I sustain;
Whatís a momentary anguish,
When compared with endless pain?
Cease thy sorrows,
Thou shalt see his smiles again.


Though the storm appears in fury,
Winds from adverse quarters roar;
Thou art safe, the Lordís thy pilot,
Soon heíll bring thee to the shore:
Thou shalt praise him,
Praise his name for evermore.


Fear not foes encircling round thee,
Faith and hope shall still prevail;
Christ thy guardian will defend thee,
His support can never fail:
Rest in Jesus,
Foes will then in vain assail.


Though of earthly good bereaved,
Greater food hast thou in store;
Jesus is thy loving Saviour,
Who for thee exert his power:
Blessed treasure,
Worlds compared with thee are poor.
