Almighty King! whose wondrous hand - Grace and Providence (William Cowper/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Grace and Providence.

1. Almighty King! whose wondrous hand
  supports the weight of sea and land,
whose grace is such a boundless store,
  no heart shall break that sighs for more.

2. Thy providence supplies my food,
  and 'tis thy blessing makes it good;
my soul is nourished by thy word,
  let soul and body praise the Lord.

3. My streams of outward comfort came
  from him who built this earthly frame:
whate'er I want his bounty gives,
  by whom my soul for ever lives.

4. Either his hand preserves from pain,
  or, if I feel it, heals again;
from Satan's malice shields my breast,
  or overrules it for the best.

5. Forgive the song that falls so low
  beneath the gratitude I owe!
It means thy praise, however poor;
  an angel's song can do no more.

William Cowper, The Complete Poetical Works of William Cowper, 1853(?), 269.
