Hymn 548
FATHER, I know that all my life

1. FATHER, I know that all my life Is portioned out for me; And the changes that are sure to come, I do not fear to see. But I ask Thee for a present mind, Intent on pleasing Thee. 2. I ask Thee for a thoughtful love, Through constant watching wise To meet the glad with joyful smiles, And to wipe the weeping eyes, And a heart at leisure from itself, To soothe and sympathize. 3. I would not have the restless will That hurries to and fro, Seeking for some great thing to do, Or secret thing to know I would be treated as a child And guided where I go. 4. Wherever in the world I am In whatsoe’er estate, I have a fellowship with hearts To keep and cultivate, And a work of lowly love to do, For the Lord on whom I wait. 5. So I ask Thee for the daily strength To none that ask denied, And a mind to blend with outward life While keeping at Thy side, Content to fill a little space If Thou be glorified.
