All things work together for good.
Sovereign Ruler of the skies,
Ever gracious, ever wise!
All my times are in thy hand;
All events at thy command.
2 Times of sickness, times of health,
Times of penury and wealth—
All must come, and last, and end,
As shall please my heavenly Friend.
3 O thou gracious, wise and just!
In thy hands my life I trust;
Have I somewhat dearer still?—
I resign it to thy will.
4 Thee at all times will I bless;
Having thee, I all possess:
Ne’er can I bereavéd be,
While I do not part with thee.
