Almighty King! whose wondrous hand
Supports the weight of sea and land;

Almighty King! whose wondrous hand
Supports the weight of sea and land;
Whose grace is such a boundless store,
No heart shall break that sighs for more.

Thy providence supplies my food,
And 'tis thy blessing makes it good;
My soul is nourished by thy word:
Let soul and body praise the Lord!

My streams of outward comfort came
From him who built this earthly fraime;
Whate'er I want his bounty gives,
By whom my soul for ever lives.

Either his hand preserves fronm pain,
Or, if I feel it, heals again;
From Satan's malice shields my breast,
Or overrules it for the best.

Forgive the song that falls so low
Beneath the gratitude I owe!
It means thy praise, however poor,
An angel's song can do no more.
