Representative Text

1 Blessed be God for all,
For all things here below;
For pain, and grief, and joy, and thrall,
To my advantage grow.

2 Blessed be God for shame,
For slander and disgrace,
Welcome reproach for Jesus' name,
Like flint, Lord set my face.

3 Blessed be God for loss,
For loss of earthly things;
For every scourge and every cross
Me nearer Jesus brings.

4 Blessed be God for want,
For want of health and food;
I live by faith and scorn to faint,
For all things work for good,

5 Blessed be God for pain,
Which tears my flesh like thorns;
It crucifies my carnal mind,
To God my soul returns.

6 Blessed be God for doubts,
Which he hath overcome;
My soul in full assurance shouts,
Of being soon at home.

7 Blessed be God for fears,
Of sin and death and hell;
When Christ who is my life appears,
In glory I shall dwell.

8 Blessed be God for friends,
Blessed be God for foes,
Blessed be God whose gracious ends,
No finite creature knows.

9 Blessed be God for life,
Blessed be God for death,
Blessed be God for joy and grief,
I welcome all through faith.
