1 Through all the various shifting scenes,
Of life's mistaken good or ill;
Thy hand, O God, conducts unseen
Our changes by thy sovereign will.

2 Thou givest with paternal care,
Howe'er unjustly we complain,
To each their necessary share
Of joy and sorrow, health and pain.

3 Trust we to youth, or friends, or power,
Fix we on this terrestrial ball?
When most secure, the coming hour,
If thou see fit, may blast them all.

4 When lowest sunk with grief and shame,
Filled with affliction's bitter cup,
Lost to relations, friends, and fame,
Thy powerful hand can raise us up.

5 Thy gracious consolations cheer,
Thy smiles suppress the deep-fetched sigh,
Thy hand can dry the trickling tear
That secret wets th' afflicted eye.

6 All things on earth, and all in heaven
On thy eternal will depend;
And all for greater good were given,
And all shall in thy glory end.

7 this be my care; to all beside
Indifferent let my wishes be;
Passion be calm; and dumb be pride,
And fixed, O God, my soul on thee.

The Hartford Selection of Hymns from the most approved authors, 1799
