One prayer I have, all prayers in one

Full Text

One prayer I have,--all prayers in one,
When I am wholly Thine;
Thy will, my God, Thy will be done,
And let that will be mine.

All-wise, all-mighty, and all-good,
In Thee I firmly trust;
Thy ways, unknown or understood,
Are merciful and just.

Is life with many comforts crown'd,
Upheld in peace and health,
With dear affections twined around,
Lord, in my time of wealth,--

May I remember, that to Thee,
Whate'er I have I owe;
And back in gratitude from me,
May all Thy bounties flow.

Thy gifts are only then enjoy'd,
When used as talents lent;
Those talents only well employ'd,
When in Thy service spent.

And though Thy wisdom takes away,
Shall I arraign Thy will?
No, let me bless Thy name, and say,
"The Lord is gracious still."

A pilgrim through the earth I roam,
Of nothing long possest,
And all must fail when I go home,
For this is not my rest.

90
Write but my name upon the roll
Of Thy redeem'd above,
Then heart, and mind, and strength and soul,
I'll love Thee for Thy love.

He left Fulneck in 1787, and entered a retail shop at Mirfield, near Wakefield. Soon tiring of that he entered upon a similar situation at Wath, near Rotherham, only to find it quite as unsuitable to his taste as the former. A journey to London, with the hope of finding a publisher for his youthful poems ended in failure; and in 1792 he was glad to leave Wath for Shefield to join Mr. Gales, an auctioneer, bookseller, and printer of the Sheffield Register newspap… Go to person page >

BEATITUDO

Composed by John B. Dykes (PHH 147), BEATITUDO was published in the revised edition of Hymns Ancient and Modern (1875), where it was set to Isaac Watts' "How Bright Those Glorious Spirits Shine." Originally a word coined by Cicero, BEATITUDO means "the condition of blessedness." Like many of Dykes's…
