1 Father of men, who can complain
Under thy mild and equal reign?
Who does a weight of duty share
More than his aids and pow'r can bear?
2 With diff'ring climes and diff'ring lands,
With fruitful plains and barren sands,
Thy hand hath form'd this earthly round,
And set each nation in its bound.
3 With like variety thy ray
Here sheds a full, there fainter day,
While all are in their measure show'd
The way to happiness and God.
4 O the unbounding grace which brought
To us the words by Jesus taught!
So blest and with such hopes inspir'd,
How much is giv'n, how much requir'd!
