“Father, Whate’er of Earthly Bliss” // Anne Steele.

Father, whate’er of earthly bliss
     Thy sovereign will denies,
Accepted at thy throne of grace,
     Let this petition rise : 

Give me a calm and thankful heart,
     From every murmur free,
The blessings of thy love impart,
     And help me live to thee.

Let the sweet hope that thou art mine
     My life and death attend ;
Thy presence through my journey shine,
     And crown my journey’s end.
