God Supreme! to thee I pray,
Let my lips be taught to say,
Whether good or ill may flow,
Hallelujah, be it so!
What thy wisdom may dictate,
Let thy servant vindicate;
Though it may my hopes o’erthrow,
Hallelujah, be it so!
Friends may falsify my trust,
Kindred also prove unjust,
Wound my heart and chill its glow,
Hallelujah, be it so!
Health and comfort may decline,
Why at this should I repine?
Both to thee my God I owe,
Hallelujah, be it so!
When by disappointment stung,
Hard it is for human tongue,
Still to say, though tears may flow,
Hallelujah, be it so!
Yet, from mercy’s aid shall spring,
Strength of spirit still to sing,
‘Mid bereavement, pain, and wo,
Hallelujah, be it so!
