1 O God! on thee we all depend,
On thy paternal care;
Thou wilt the father and the friend
In every act appear.
2 With open hand and liberal hart
Thou wilt our wants supply;
Thy heav'nly blessings still impart,
And no good thing deny.
3 Our father knows what's good and fit,
And wisdom guides his love;
To thine appointments we submit,
and ev'ry choice approve.
4 In thy paternal love and care
With cheerful hearts we trust;
Thy tender mercies boundless are,
And all thy ways are just.
5 We cannot want, while God provides;
What he ordains is best;
And Heav'n, whate'er we want besides,
Will give eternal rest.
