O BLESSED peace of a perfect trust,
My loving God, in Thee;
Unwavering faith, that never doubts
Thou choosest best for me.
Best, though my plans be all upset;
Best, though the way be rough;
Best, though mine earthly store be scant;
In Thee I have enough.
Best, though my health and strength be gone,
Though weary days be mine,
Shut out from much that others have;
Not my will, Lord, but Thine!
And e’en though disappointments come,
They, too, are best for me,
To wean me from a clam’ring world,
And lead me nearer Thee.
O blessed peace of a perfect trust
That looks away from all;
That sees Thy hand in everything,
In great events or small;
That hears Thy voice—a Father’s voice—
Directing for the best:—
O blessed peace of a perfect trust,
A heart with Thee at rest!
In Thee, O LORD, do I put my trust — Psa. 31:1.
