"My meditation of him shall be sweety
A^rHATE'ER my God ordains is right;
His will is ever just ; [P. M. Howe'er he orders now my cause Howe'er he orders now my cause,
I will be still and trust.
He is my God;
Though dark my road,
He holds me that I shall not fall,
Wherefore to him I leave it all.
2 Whate'er my God ordains is right;
He never will deceive;
He leads me by the proper path,
And so to him I cleave,
And take content
What he hath sent;
His hand can turn my griefs away.
And jjatiently I wait his day.
3 Whate'er my God ordains is right;
Though I the cup must drink
That bitter seems to my faint heart,
I will not fear nor shrink;
Tears pass away
With dawn of day;
Sweet comfort yet shall fill my heart,
And pain and sorrow all depart.
4 Whate'er my God ordains is right;
My Light, my Life is he,
Who cannot will me aught but good;
I trust him utterly;
For well I know,
In joy or woe,
We soon shall see, as sunlight clear,
How faithful was our Guardian here.
5 Whate'er my God ordains is right;
Here will I take my stand.
Though sorrow, need, or death make earth
For me a desert land.
My Father's care
Is round me there.
He holds me that I shall not fall;
And so to him I leave it all.
