'Tis the Lord, I know it is
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

'Tis the Lord, I know it is.

"It is the Lord." (1 Samuel 3,18)

1. 'Tis the Lord, I know it is;
  let him all his pleasure do;
'tis enough if I am his;
  safe his people are, I know.
    What can harm his people? what!
    His they are who changes not.

2. Trials are the lot of all,
  whom the Saviour owns as his:
mine have been but few and small;
  yet my heart, how weak it is!
    Ever ready to repine;
    O what patience, Lord, is thine!

3. Thy compassion does not fail;
  therefore I am suffered still;
why this grace to one so frail?
  This I know not – 'tis thy will.
    'Tis thy will it should be so;
    this is all I ask to know.

4. Sure I am, beyond a doubt,
  if what I deserve were mine,
from thy presence, Lord, cast out,
  far from thee, and far from thine:
    I should live, and I should be,
    wretched through eternity.

5. Let not thy compassion fail,
    till the end of strife I see;
still let grace and love prevail,
  and thy name a refuge be,
    till I reach the happy shore
    where thy saints offend no more.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 179.
