Rejoice, My Heart, Be Glad and Sing Songtext
9. He ever will with patience chide,

His rod falls gently down,

And all thy sins He casts aside

And in the sea doth drown.

10. When silent woe thy bosom rends,

His pity sees thy grief,

Supplies what to His glory tends

And to thine own relief.

11. He knows how oft a Christian weeps

And why his tears now fall;

And in the His mercy keeps

These things are noted all

13. Rejoice, my heart, be glad and sing,

A cheerful trust maintain;

For God, the Source of everything,

Thy Portion shall remain.

14. He is thy Treasure, He thy Joy,

Thy Life and Light and Lord,

Thy Counselor when doubts annoy,

Thy Shield and great Reward.

15. Why spend the day in blank despair,

In restless thought the night?

On thy Creator cast thy care;

He makes thy burdens light.

16. Did not His love and truth and power

Watch o'er thy childhood day?

Has He not oft in threatening hour

Turned dreaded ills away?

17. His wisdom never plans in vain,

Ne'er falters or mistakes;

All that His counsels did ordain

A happy ending makes.

18. Upon thy lips, then, lay thy hand

And trust His guiding love;

Then like a rock thy peace shall stand

Here and in heaven above.
