SUBMISSION




Dear Lord, my best desires fulfil,
And help me to resign
Life, health, and comfort, to thy will,
And make thy pleasure mine.


Why should I shrink at thy command.
Whose love forbids my fears?
Or tremble at the gracious hand.
That wipes away my tears?


NoŚlet me rather freely yield
What most I prize to thee,
Who never hast a good withheld,
Nor wilt withhold, from me.


Thy favour, all my journey through,
Thou art engaged to grant:
What else I want, or think I do,
'Tis better still to want.


Wisdom and mercy guide my way;
Shall I resist them both?
A poor blind creature of a day,
And crushed before the moth?


But ah! my inmost spirit cries,
Still bind me to thy sway;
Else the next cloud that veils my skies
Drives all these thoughts away.
