2   In Thee my trust abideth,
On Thee my hope relies, O Thou whose love provideth
For all beneath the skies; O Thou whose mercy found me,
From bondage set me free, And then forever bound me
With threefold cords to Thee.
3  My grief is in the dulness
With which this sluggish heart Doth open to the fulness
Of all Thou wouldst impart; My joy is in Thy beauty
Of holiness Divine, My comfort in the duty
That binds my life in Thine.
4  Alas, that I should ever
Have failed in love to Thee, The only one who never
Forgot or slighted me! O for a heart to love Thee ,
More truly as I ought, And nothing place above Thee
In deed, or word, or thought.
5   O for that choicest blessing
Of living in Thy love, And thus on earth possessing
The peace of heaven above; O for the bliss that by it
The soul securely knows, The holy calm and quiet
Of faith's serene repose.
Revi John S. B. Monsell, 1863
