Lord, it belongs not to my careAuthor: Richard Baxter (1681)

1 Lord, it belongs not to my care
Whether I die or live;
To love and serve Thee is my share,
And this Thy grace must give.
2 If life be long, oh, make me glad
The longer to obey;
If short, no laborer is sad
To end his toilsome day.
3 Christ leads me through no darker rooms
Than He went through before;
And he that to God's kingdom comes
Must enter by this door.
4 Come, Lord, when grace has made me meet
Thy blessed face to see;
For if Thy work on earth be sweet,
What will Thy glory be?
5 Then I shall end my sad complaints
And weary, sinful days,
And join with the triumphant saints
Who sing my Savior's praise.
6 My knowledge of that life is small,
The eye of faith is dim;
But 'tis enough that Christ knows all,
And I shall be with Him.
