Christian Worship Confidence In God.
My God! the covenant of thy love
Abides forever sure;
And in thy matchless grace I feel
My happiness secure.
What though my house be not with thee
As nature could desire?
To nobler joys than nature gives
Thy servants all aspire.
Since thou, the everlasting God,
My Father art become;
Jesus my Guardian and my Friend,
And heaven my final home:
I welcome all thy sovereign will,
For all that will is love;
And when I know not what thou dost,
I wait the light above.
Thy covenant the last accent claims
Of this poor faltering tongue;
And that shall the first notes employ
Of my celestial song.
