451. Thanks for all

1 O thou, whose bounty fills my cup
With every blessing meet!
I give thee, thanks for every drop--
The bitter and the sweet.

2 I praise thee for the desert road,
And for the river-side;
For all thy goodness that bestowed,
And all thy grace denied.

3 I thank thee for both smile and frown,
And for the gain and loss;
I praise thee for the future crown,
And for the present cross.

4 I thank thee for the wing of love,
Which stirred my worldly nest;
And for the stormy clouds which drove
The flutterer to thy breast.

5 I bless thee for the glad increase,
And for the waning joy;
And for this strange, this settled peace,
Which nothing can destroy.
