Is this unpleasing cup now given By thee




Is this unpleasing cup now given,
By thee, my Father, Lord of heaven:
O let me then in silence stand,
And meekly take it at thy hand.


If thou wilt help me to believe,
I can this bitter draught receive;
Though mix'd with wormwood and with gall,
My soul in faith can drink it all.


Thou knows't I am but feeble dust,
Too apt thy goodness to distrust;
But let not darkness veil my mind,
Let me not think my God unkind.


Still Saviour let me see thy face,
And rest my soul in thine embrace;
Send down fresh cordials from above,
And mix this woe with signs of love.


Dost thou not bear thy children's grief:
Then I from thee shall gain relief;
Yes, by thy grace and love divine,
Though all unworthy I am thine.


Vengeance is not prepar'd for me,
My cup of wrath was drank by thee;
O let mr soul forbear to frown,
And drink this milder mixture down.


Lord while its bitter flavour last,
Let thy rich love be my repast;
Oft as the taste return again,
Let heav'nly joys.absorb the pain.
