210. Commit Thou All That Grieves Thee

1 Commit thou all that grieves thee
And fills thy heart with care
To Him whose might and glory
The starry skies declare.
He shows the winds their courses
And points the clouds their way;
Will He not guide thy footsteps
And be thy staff and stay?

2 The Lord must be thy refuge
If thou wouldst feel secure;
His work must thou consider
If thine is to endure.
No profit will it yield thee
To pine in grief and care;
But God will lend His blessing
In answer to thy prayer.

3 Thy faithful love and mercy,
O Father, knoweth well
The needs of all Thy children
Who in Thy shadow dwell.
And what Thy wisdom chooseth
Thy might will surely do;
According to Thy counsel
Wilt Thou Thy work pursue.

4 Hope on, then, weak believer,
In trouble undismayed;
The gloomy night is waning,
Thy fears shall be allayed.
Possess thy soul in patience,
Be firm in God's employ,
And thou in radiant beauty
Shalt see the Sun of Joy.
