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.

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]
