1 MY Father! cheering name!
O may I call Thee mine!
Give me with humble hope to claim
A portion so divine.
2 Whate'er Thy will denies,
I calmly would resign;
For Thou art just, and good, and wise,
O bend my will to Thine!
3 Whate'er Thy will ordains,
O give me strength to bear;
Still let me know a Father reigns,
And trust a Father's care.
4 Thy ways are little known
To my weak, erring sight;
Yet shall my soul, believing, own
That all Thy ways are right.
