What'er my God ordains is right: holy his will abideth;
I will be still what'er he doth, and follow where He guideth:
He is my God; though dark my road, He holds me that I shall not fall: wherefore to Him I leave it all.
What'er my God ordains is right: He never will deceive me;
He leads me by the proper path; I know He will not leave me:
I take, content, what he hath sent; his hand can turn my griefs away, and patiently I wait his day.
What'er my God ordains is right: though now this cup, in drinking
May bitter seem to my faint heart, I take it, all unshrinking:
My God is true; each morn anew sweet comfort yet shall fill my heart, and pain and sorrow shall depart.
What'er my God ordains is right: here shall my stand be taken;
Though sorrow, need, or death be mine, yet am I not forsaken;
My Father's care is round me there; He holds me that I shall not fall: and so to Him I leave it all.
