PATIENCE OF HOPE




Thou sovereign Ruler of the world,
To thee would I resign,
My future hopes and present joys,
And learn thy will divine.


I kiss the hand which holds the rod,
Nor will I dare complain;
Although my brightest days be past,
My darkest still remain.


Compared with what my Saviour felt,
How light my sorrows are;
Nor can the greatest pains I feel,
With pains of hell compare.


Then will I patiently submit,
Nor let a murmur rise,
While I possess a steadfast hope
Of bliss beyond the skies.
