562. Father, whate'er of earthly bliss

1 Father, whate'er of earthly bliss
Thy sovereign will denies,
Accepted at thy Throne of grace,
Let this petition rise:

2 Give me a calm, a thankful heart,
From ev'ry murmur free;
The blessings of thy grace impart,
And make me live to thee.

3 Let the sweet hope that thou art mine
My life and death attend;
Thy presence through my journey shine,
And crown my journey's end.
