1 Commit thou all thy griefs
And ways into his hands;
To his sure truth and tender care,
Who earth and heav'n commands.
2 Who points the clouds their course,
Whom winds and seas obey,
He shall direct thy wand'ring feet,
He shall prepare thy way.
3 Give to the winds thy fears;
Hope, and be undismayed;
God hears thy sighs, and counts thy tears,
God shall lift up thy head.
4 What though thou rulest not?
Yet heav'n and earth and hell
Proclaim, God sitteth on the throne,
And ruleth all things well.
5 Leave to his sovereign sway
To choose and to command;
So shalt thou wond'ring own, his way
How wise, how strong his hand!
