462. S. M. Gruenbeck. Self-abandonment to God.
1 Lord! bring me to resign
My doubting heart to thee;
And, whether cheerful or distressed,
Thine, thine alone to be.
2 My only aim be this, --
Thy purpose to fulfil,
In thee rejoice with all my strength,
And do thy holy will.
3 Lord! thy all-seeing eye
Keeps watch with sleepless care:
Thy great compassion never fails;
Thou hear'st my needy prayer.
4 So will I firmly trust,
That thou wilt guide me still,
And guard me safe throughout the way
That leads to Zion's hill.
