Published in 4 hymnals
1 Thy everlasting truth,
Father, thy ceaseless love,
sees all thy chldren's wants,
and knows what best for each will prove.
2 Thou ev'rywhere hast sway,
and all things serve thy might;
thy ev'ry act pure blessing is,
thy path unsullied light.
3 Thou seest our weakness, Lord;
our hearts are known to thee;
O lift thou up the sinking hand,
confirm the feeble knee.
4 Let us in life, in death,
thy steadfast will declare,
and publish with our latest breath
thy love and guardian care.
