1 Glory to thee, thou righteous God;
Righteous, yet kind to me;
For under thy paternal rod,
Paternal love I see.
2 Though humbled in the lowest deep,
Thy gracious hand I bless;
And, thinking of thy love, I weep
For my unfaithfulness.
3 Thou dost in tenderness chastise,
And graciously reprove:
My father!--all within me cries--
Thy ways are truth and love.
