401. O Thou, from whom all goodness flows
Arr. from Gioacchinno A. Rossini, 1851
Edward Horsman, 1903
O Thou, from whom all goodness flows,
I lift my heart to thee;
In all my sorrows, conflicts, woes,
Dear Lord, remember me.
When on my aching, burdened heart
My sins lie heavily,
Thy pardon grant, thy peace impart:
In love, remember me.
When trials sore obstruct my way,
And ills I cannot flee,
O let my strength be as my day!
For good, remember me.
If worn with pain, disease, and grief
This feeble frame should be,
Grant patience, rest, and kind relief:
Hear and remember me.
And O when in the hour of death
I own thy just decree,
Be this the prayer of my last breath,
Dear Lord, remember me!
