1 Peace, my complaining heart!
Ye busy cares, be still!
Adore the just, the sov'reign Lord,
Nor murmur at his will.

2 'Tis wisdom guides his hand;
Nor dares my guilty fear,
Amidst the sharpest pains I feel,
Pronounce his hand severe.

3 To soften ev'ry stroke,
Indulgent mercy bends;
And, unrepining when I plead,
His gracious ear attends.

4 Let me reflect with awe,
Whene'er my heart complains:
Compar'd with what my sins deserve,
How easy are my pains!

5 Yes, Lord, I own thy hand,
Thou just, and wise, and kind!
Be ev'ry anxious thought suppress'd,
And all my soul resign'd.
