        1. My spirit on Thy care,
        Blest Savior, I recline;
        Thou wilt not leave me to despair,
        For Thou art Love divine.

        2. In Thee I place my trust,
        On Thee I calmly rest;
        I know Thee good, I know Thee just,
        And count Thy choice the best.

        3. Whate'er events betide,
        Thy will they all perform;
        Safe in Thy breast my head I hide
        Nor fear the coming storm.

        4. Let good or ill befall,
        It must be good for me;
        Secure of having Thee in all,
        Of having all in Thee.
