1 I thank Thee, Savior for the grief
Thy goodness bids me bear,
And for each word of sweet relief,
That saves me from despair.
2 I see but dimly all Thy ways,
Nor may each purpose tell,
But this I know to wake my praise:
Thou doest all things well.
3 The way of life is by the cross,
The glowing fires along,
Which serve to purge away the dross
And make the spirit strong.
4 To me, O Lord, Thy grace impart,
Each trial to abide,
And ever let my fainting heart
Find refuge at Thy side.
