Hymns From The Morningland by John Brownlie

Forgive my heart its vain regrets,

tr., John Brownlie

8,8,8,8

I

Forgive my heart its vain regrets,

And, as I cast my eyes behind,

Subdue the spirit, Lord, that frets,

Because the light with dark is twined.

II

I cannot understand the way

By which unerring wisdom leads;

Nor do I know for what to pray,

Unconscious of my deepest needs.

III

Thou, Whose almighty power upholds

The stars that in their courses move, --

Whose eye creation's need beholds

To prompt the outflow of Thy love; --

IV

Teach me in calm content to live

'Mid all the changes life contains,

Assured that, love and wisdom give

The blessing that for aye remains.

V

And in the darkness and the light,

And in the gladness and the pain,

Make me to know that all is right,

And every loss my truest gain.
