Hymn/Song Information

I WELCOME ALL THY SOVEREIGN WILL




My God, the covenant of thy love
Abides for ever sure,
And in its matchless grace I feel
My happiness secure.


Since thou, the everlasting God,
My Father art become,
Jesus my Guardian and my Friend,
And heaven my final home,


I welcome all thy sovereign will,
For all that will is love;
And when I know not what thou dost,
I wait the light above.


What though my house be not with thee,
As nature could desire?
To nobler joys than nature gives
Thy servant doth aspire.


Thy covenant in the darkest gloom
Shall heavenly rays impart,
Which, when my eye-lids close in death.
Sustain my fainting heart.


---Alternative verses---


Thy covenant in the darkest gloom
Shall heavenly rays impart,
Which, when my eye-lids close in death.
Shall warm my chilling heart.
