I praise thee, blessed God - A Wayside Song
(Hannah K. Burlingham/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

A Wayside Song.

1. I praise thee, blessed God,
  for ways I cannot trace,
for all the wisdom of thy Word,
  the glory of thy grace.

2. Thou dost in mercy wean
  thy little ones like me;
thou makest earth a shaded scene,
  that thou our light mayst be.

3. I know that all is well;
  'tis meet that faith be tried;
'tis mine thy faithfulness to tell;
  my footsteps thou dost guide.

4. My God, I joy in thee,
  of good the source divine;
the thousand streams my song shall be,
  where love in light doth shine.

5. The city stands secure;
  my pilgrim days are few;
through grace, thy grace, I shall endure,
  the end – thine end – in view.

6. Sustain me, lest I fall;
  direct thou still my feet;
and let me give thee thanks for all,
  the bitter as the sweet.

7. I praise thee, blessed God,
  for ways I cannot trace,
for all the wisdom of thy Word,
  the glory of thy grace!

Hannah K. Burlingham, Wayside Songs, 1901, 54-56.
