Quiet, Lord, my froward heart

1. Quiet, Lord, my froward heart,
Make me teachable and mild,
Upright, simple, free from art,
Make me as a weanèd child:
From distrust and envy free,
Pleased with all that pleases Thee.

2. What Thou shalt today provide,
Let me as a child receive;
What tomorrow may betide,
Calmly to Thy wisdom leave:
’Tis enough that Thou wilt care,
Why should I the burden bear?

3. As a little child relies
On a care beyond his own;
Knows he’s neither strong nor wise,
Fears to stir a step alone:
Let me thus with Thee abide,
As my Father, Guard, and Guide.

4. Thus preserved from Satan’s wiles,
Safe from dangers, free from fears;
May I live upon Thy smiles,
Till the promised hour appears;
When the sons of God shall prove
All their Father’s boundless love.
**alt vers

1. Quiet, Lord, each froward heart,
Make loving, meek and mild,
Upright, simple, free from art,
Make me as a little child;
From distrust and envy free,
Pleased with all that pleases thee.

3. As a little child relies
On a care beyond his own,
Knows beneath his father's eyes,
He is never left alone,
So would I with thee abide,
Thou my Father, Guard, and Guide.
