Quiet, Lord, my froward heart. J. Newton. [Resignation.] Appeared in the Olney Hymns, 1779, Book iii., No. 65, in 4 stanzas of 6 lines, and headed "The Child." It has passed into a large number of hymnbooks. In some it begins "Jesus, make my froward heart," but this form of the text is not popular.
