All-seeing God, thy love sustains

All-seeing God, thy love sustains
our souls in life, and ever reigns;
thou orderest all.
with changeless truth, thy gracious Eye
is over all, through earth and sky,
man's hour of birth, his time to die,
ir sparrow's fall.

O let us see thy hand, and know,
as life's great changes come and go,
that thou art near !
We would not, like unconscious things,
just bear thy sovereign orderings ;
but rest beneath the cherub's wings,
with love, not fear.

No evil shall molest us there,
O God, we are beneath thy care,
our Father thou!
Unseen, we can behold thee still,
and daily give to thee our will,
and with enduring grace fulfil
thy precepts now.

And so in peace await the end,
the everlasting is our friend,
our conscious trust;
and thou, O Christ! our all is cast
on thee, till death and time are past,
for thou wilt bid us at the last,
rise from the dust.

William Josiah Irons (1812-1883)
