46. O Thou whose bounty fills my cup

1 O Thou whose bounty fills my cup
With ev’ry blessing meet!
I give Thee thanks for ev’ry drop,
The bitter and the sweet.

Refrain:
In ev’rything give thanks,
In ev’rything give thanks,
For this is the will of God in Christ Jesus
Concerning you!

2 I praise Thee for the desert road,
And for the riverside;
For all Thy goodness hath bestowed,
And all Thy grace denied. [Refrain]

3 I thank Thee for both smile and frown,
And for the gain and loss;
I praise Thee for the future crown,
And for the present cross. [Refrain]

4 I thank Thee for the wing of love,
Which stirred my worldly nest;
And for the stormy clouds which drove
The flutterer to Thy breast. [Refrain]

5 I bless Thee for the glad increase,
And for the waning joy;
And for this strange, this settled peace,
Which nothing can destroy. [Refrain]
