1. My God, my Father, blissful name
Oh 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 Fathers eye?
2. Whateer Thy providence denies
I calmly would resign
For Thou art just, and good, and wise
O bend my will to Thine
Whateer Thy sacred will ordains
O give me strength to bear;
And let me know my Father reigns
And trust His tender care
3. If pain and sickness rend this frame
And life almost depart
Is not Thy mercy still the same
To cheer my drooping heart
If cares and sorrows me surround
Their power why should I fear?
My inward peace they cannot wound
If Thou, my God, art near
