Father, Whate'er of Earthly Bliss

     Anne Steele                                         Hans Georg Nägeli

Father, whate'er of earthly bliss,
Thy sov'reign will denies,
Accepted at thy throne of grace,
Let this petition rise:

Give me a calm, a thankful heart,
From ev'ry murmur free;
The blessings of thy grace impart,
And make me live to thee.

Let the sweet hope that thou art mine
My live and death attend;
Thy presence thro' my journey shine,
And crown my jouney's end.
