Hymns From The Morningland by John Brownlie

Forgive my heart its vain regrets,

tr., John Brownlie



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.


I cannot understand the way

By which unerring wisdom leads;

Nor do I know for what to pray,

Unconscious of my deepest needs.


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; --


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.


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.
