My God my Father cheering Name O may I




My God, my Father, cheering Name!
O may I call Thee mine?
May I, with sweet assurance, claim
A portion so divine?


This only can my fears control,
And bid my sorrows fly:
What harm can ever reach my soul,
Beneath my Father’s eye?


Whate’er Thy providence denies,
I calmly would resign;
For Thou art just, and good, and wise;
O bend my will to Thine.


Whate’er Thy sacred will ordains,
O give me strength to bear;
And let me know my Father reigns,
And trust His tender care.


If pain and sickness
rend this frame,
And life almost depart,
Is not Thy mercy still the same,
To cheer my drooping heart?


My God, my Father! be Thy Name
My solace and my stay;
O wilt Thou seal my humble claim,
And drive my fears away?


Thy sovereign ways are all unknown
To my weak erring sight;
Yet let my soul, adoring, own
That all thy ways are right.

A portion so divine?


This can my every fear control,
And bid my sorrows fly:
What harm can ever reach my soul,
Beneath my Father’s eye?


This only can my fears control,
And bid my sorrows fly:
What real harm can reach my soul,
Beneath my Father’s eye?


My God, my Father, blessed Name!
O may I call Thee mine?
May I, with sweet assurance, claim
A portion so divine?


My God, my Father, cheering Name!
O may I call Thee mine?
Give me with humble hope to claim
A portion so divine?


Whate’er Thy providence denies,
I calmly would resign;
For Thou art good, and just, and wise;
O bend my will to Thine.


Whate’er Thy sacred will ordains,
Give me the strength to bear;
Oh, let me know my Father reigns,
And trust thy tender care.


Whate’er thy sovereign will ordains,
Oh, give me strength to bear;
Still let me know a Father reigns,
Still trust a Father’s care.
