Hymns I’m Angry I Didn’t Learn as a Child (12)

I found this gem while looking back through Pink’s The Sovereignty of God.  I love the last stanza.

I Worship Thee, Most Gracious God
By Frederick W. Faber

I worship Thee, most gracious God,
And all Thy ways adore;
And every day I live, I seem
To love Thee more and more.

When obstacles and trials seem
Like prison walls to be,
I do the little I can do,
And leave the rest to Thee.

I have no cares, O blessèd Will,
For all my cares are Thine;
I live in triumph, Lord, for Thou
Hast made Thy triumphs mine.

He always wins who sides with God;
To him no chance is lost;
God’s will is sweetest to him when
It triumphs at his cost.

Ill that He blesses is our good,
And unblest good is ill;
And all is right that seems most wrong,
If it be His sweet will.

One thought on “Hymns I’m Angry I Didn’t Learn as a Child (12)”

  1. That is a great hymn.
    I had to read the last stanza a few times to understand it. It’s pretty profound.
    We spend a lot of time pursuing unblessed good.
