Christ My Song - 1046
I praise thee, blessed God - A Wayside Song
(Hannah K. Burlingham/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
A Wayside Song.
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.
