My spirit on thy care,
      Blest Saviour, I recline;

Psalm xxxi.

My spirit on thy care,
      Blest Saviour, I recline;
Thou wilt not leave me in despair,
      For thou art Love divine.

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.

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

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

~ Henry Francis Lyte
